This week the challenge at Sentimental Sundays is Treasured Memories. When I saw their free sentiment it made me think of my mother so I made this card in memory of her. I want to make a shadow box frame for this and display it in my guest room.
I used papers from K&Company "Life's Journey". The papers have been distressed with my trusty little sissors and then I used tea dye distress ink. The flowers are handmade. The large flower is colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Rudolph's Nose Red" and "Medieval Gold" and has some Crystal Stickles added. The small flower is made from the DP and also has stickles added. I designed the background for the quote in PSE and then used a Spellbinders die and added some faux stitching.
I tore the rose paper, punched some holes, and threaded with yarn and beads. The panel is on pop dots over a post card DP. I then finished it with some ribbon and lace.
As is so often the case, when you start remembering things from the past, one thought leads to another. The post card made me think about the letters mother sent me when I was doing some volunteer work in another state. The rose paper made me remember the gorgeous roses my mother grew. Strangers would stop and comment about her roses. I added the cross to remember her love for the Lord and her desire to always live a life pleasing to Him.
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day!
