My card features the rose and a sentiment from Pretty Momma. This beautiful set is unlike anything you've seen so far from Paper Smooches and it's primarily geared toward mothers and grandmothers but it can also be used for all the wonderful females in your life like girlfriends, sisters and aunts!

To create my rose, I stamped it four times on white stick-back canvas and fussy cut each layer. I misted each section with four different colours and assembled it. Then I used my finger to apply yellow glitter in the centre. On the card base, the chevrons from Geo-Graphic are second-generation stamped, meaning that I stamped the ink once on scrap paper before I stamped it a second time on the card. I did this to get an exact match of yellow for the centre of the rose. To finish, I attached the rose with glue dots and stamped the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Pretty Momma!
