Who's Your Mama?

The Alphabet Soup challenges continue at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers... today we present Y IS FOR YOUR MAMA! It's time to make Mother's Day cards! 


I just need the one Mother's Day card, and that is for my mother-in-law, so there is a definite lack of snark here today. ;) 


Since she is a former piano teacher and choir member, I think this card should be just about perfect for her. ;) I'm adding this card to the Clear it Out purple challenge (the punched mauve bird & purple cardstock), the Card Concept's monochromatic purple challenge (in the clean and layered style) and Simon Says Stamp's anything goes challenge.
Check out what the rest of the Snarky Sisters have come up with for this challenge -- and don't worry, one or two of the design team did manage some snark. We are also highlighting our guest designer and recent challenge winner Shari! And then, what are you waiting for? Time to finish those Mother's Day projects and join us! 

Supplies: white, mauve & purple cardstock, milled lavender and dusty concord distress inks, Radiant Rain shimmering ice mist, Memory Box woodland branch and virtuoso music dies, Stampin' Up bird punch, Spellbinders music embossing folder

Beautiful card. And it is hard to be snarky with most MIL's; so sticking with lovely is good.

Sweet and clean, (style that is). I love the layer of music behind the dark branch.

This is just stunning, Lindsey! I love the music notes - all of them - and that bird is the perfect focal point!

The embossing is gorgeous! I live that it's purple, too...I hardly ever see cards with a lot of purple. The music theme is great for her!
