Playing Cards with Friends ala Michele!

 Hello, Friends!

I've come today with a fun "play date" with Michele and I hope you enjoy our fun!  She has honored me with an invitation to be her friend for the month -- but I hope the friendship will last longer - lol.  Michele is actually one of my longest and loudest cheerleaders, and as sweet as can be.  She's set the stipulations of our play date ~

* Flowers
*  Embossing
*  Remembering Mom

This Sunday is Mother's Day so you probably think I'll be making a Mother's Day card, and while I did, it'll be another post.  I decided to make my Mom a Birthday card since her Birthday is at the end of the month.
Here's my card ~

And a close-up of all that glorioius shine from the hot foiling ~

I made two other cards, but this is my FAVE!  After completing the embossing and hot foiling, I added extra color to the flowers and leaves with Copics for some depth but I must admit the colors are not quite true due to the rainy days we've had lately.  These are different colors for me and definitely different for mom, but I know she'll love it 'cause she's my Mom!  I used a few new products, so there's another plus.

Thank you for stopping by and please join me in visiting Michele' to see her beauty -- trust me, her cards all are!
