Mom - Take 2

Hey all, happy Friday. I was working till now, and then the elementary school got cancelled because of heavy rain, very soon after lunch. I was with the grade 6's, and they were pretty fast in calling their parents for pick up. Once all the kids from my class were picked up, since I am a substitute teacher, I can go home, unlike the full time teachers :D

I just got home, my kids are still at school, secondary classes are still on, and they are better off without me, taking their school bus. I have no work so sat down to blog, have a couple of cards, waiting to be shared.

I am sharing a card which I made yesterday afternoon.
I started off with the AlteNew roses , and used the color palette from them. I did masking ans stamping here, and once I was happy with the stamped images, I fussy cut, and then I also die cut a frame using MFT rectangle die. I have added the frame partly, then used peacock feathers and another dark blue shade of distress ink to add splatters. Then added some tissue bits and finally the roses on top.
A few sequins to finish off. The sentiment is from Hero Arts - Sketched letters, and Woodware crafts.

AlteNew - April Inspiration Challenge: From Places Abroad – Thailand
I am a big fan of the Thailand Palace in Bangkok, it is one of the most picturesque places on earth. I tried to incorporate some gold along with the colors, as for me without gold it is incomplete to take inspiration from the this palace. I enjoyed visiting this palace and have loads of pictures from here.

TIMEOUT Challenge
I have used both fussy cut and die cut, and my card is a mother's day celebration card.
Celebrations with optional twist of die cutting/fussy cutting
