Final Mother's Day Card for Mom #7


This one finishes the cards I send to Mom for the week of Mother's Day. I had intended (and had promised) to make a RED card, and then I saw the challenges today at SCS, and here's my story (to coin a Mothermark phrase):

The colors prescribed were Gable Green, Lovely Lilac, and Cameo Coral. Very hard to sneak a little RED into that mix, so I just went with those colors, plus my neutral white.

The MMTPT92, however was a different story! The theme is Hocus Pocus, what is missing? In my case, what is missing (you guessed it) is the RED! There were 42,000 RED blossoms on this exotic lilac tree, and when the blooms were picked, all 42,000 of those little bitty flowers fell apart. Honestly!! David Copperfield couldn't even make them reappear!! That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! LOL!

  6. You did an amazing job with this challenging color combination and made it look awesome!! These were three of my not so favoritest SU colors and I won't be sad when these particular ones disappear. We should put them in the magic hat along with Glorious Green and Orchid Opulence for Cindy's teapot challenge. bwahahaha.
