There's nothing on this card that's new and trendy - but it totally works for my mother-in-law. She prefers cute cards. Actually she prefers snarky and sarcastic cards, but I don't have anything like that for Mother's Day. So I dug deep into my stash looking for things that seemed like her. The paper is at least a decade old - maybe even two decades - but I love its simple, cheerful look. The stamp is long retired but it fit nicely into the open space while still having an interesting look. And the dies are from a company that doesn't even exist any more.
It always amuses me that I can so enjoy working with old and out-of-date products yet I keep adding to my stash!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
