The Theory of Three

Well we all know that things happen in threes whether good or bad. Well I got a little Mojo Monday 85 sprinkled with some OCC Mother's Day inspiration for an MFT Girls Day In challenge. I think this is the first time I have done so many challenges in one card and I feel this is a good three. You can't tell from the picture, but the hat, flower, forward arm, and shoe is ever so slightly popped up. I paper pieced the dress and colored everything in with copics. All the stamps are from MFT's Can Ya' Dig it set. DP is from SU's Bella rose collection. The image and the sentiment are popped up with pop-up dots. This card will be for my mom who loves gardening and with her love has helped me grow into the woman I am today. Love you mom!

Thanks to Sandra, a fourth has been dicovered...another Mother's Day Challenge at CCEE.

Great minds do think alike! Things do come in three's, but you did a fourth! CCEE Stampers did a mother's day challenge too. :) You need to add this card to their blog too. This is gorgeous too Mary!! I love that three tied ribbons idea and these are great gardening colors! Your mum will love it! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Olivia!!

Beautiful card Mary! I have always loved those SU papers and they work perfectly with that image and a Mother's Day challenge! ? for you - What do you use when you "ever so slightly" raise an image up? I've been trying to do some different layers lately and all of the different "pop up" adhesive I have are about the same height, which is too much sometimes. TFS :-) Traci
