Mom's just Peachy! card

Hope your Mother's Day weekend is off to a good start!

My card today features a couple of different DT elements. I am a guest DT over @ "I Brake For Stamps"  this month and used the peach image  from their wonderful  MS71 Full Plate. It is just one of several images on this set. Here is a "Cherry Pie" card that I made with this same set also. If you go shopping @ "I Brake For Stamps", make sure and use coupon code SAVE10True to save 10% off of your entire order!
Like I told Della, the owner, it is funny how you can look at a stamp and think "Oh, that is nice" but then you add color and just fall in love with it! There is just something about seeing images in color that really shows off the stamp. I guess that is the reason stamp companies have us Design Team girls! LOL!
I used watercolors to paint the image then some UTEE to give the peach half some "juice".  :)

Remember, You can click on the pictures to enlarge for better detail.

The other DT element I used is that BEAUTIFUL Moss Swirls ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I also used the Bow-easy that Bonnie sent me with my 1st DT package to make that perfect bow!
I thought I would try something different instead of just running my ribbon down the card. I punched holes then weaved the ribbon through the card front. It was fun and I think it looks pretty cool!

The papers are Bazzill and a piece of stash that I don't have the name of. Sorry!
I came up with the sentiment and did it in Photo Shop, then printed it off with my computer.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CCEE Stampers ~ Mother's Day
Stampin B's ~ Botanical

I actually made two of these cards. One for my mom and one for my mother-in-law. I hope they like them!
I would like to wish all of the Mom's out there a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
I would love it if you would leave a comment...you could call it my Mother's Day gift from you!  ;)
True :D

the detail you added with your colouring is amazingly real, the utee makes the peach look succulent and the ribbon just adds more texture and interest to the card...like it needed anything else to make it perfect!

Trudy: All I can see is what a fantastic mothers day card and tfs.
I love the coloring and that peach looks good enough to eat. I also love your blog and became a follower so I won't miss anything. I also just joined the kit club for RRR and got my first kit and the ribbon is fab and I also had to order one of the bow makers, I always have a hard time making bows and hope this will make it easier. Again thanks for sharing your great creations...
