I have so many things to be thankful for — a wonderful family, fabulous friends, a fantastic job, and of course a hobby that brings me joy. All of these things criss-cross my life in so many ways. One of the many things I am thankful for is to have a supportive, loving, and artistic mother who has taught me so many things. She is a fabulous needlepoint designer and Jewish educator. She has many themes and motifs that she uses in her own art, but above all else, she loves doves. So I created this card just for her. In fact, I bought the Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers set, just for this dove, so I could make her cards with it. (It comes with 4 shapes.) I realized when I finished it, that I didn’t even stamp anything on it. I did use the Texturz Plates background that looks like the Baroque Motifs swirl, which is her favorite Stampin’ Up design. With its clean layout, this card is also perfect for todays “Keep It Simple, Sweetie” challenge on Pals Paper Arts.
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Other: Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers set, White Satin Ribbon, Texturz Plates Background #1, Big Shot
Hope you like it, Mom! And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
