Day 1 of the Mothers and Daughters Creations First Annual Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll

Thanks for joining the very first Mothers and Daughters Creations Mother’s Day Traditions Blog Roll. You can find all of the exciting details about this blog roll on the main Mothers and Daughters Challenge Blog, where our own Mother and Daughter Team of Linda and Tam will be sharing some very special Mothers Day memories and traditions.
This week Cathy is hosting the weekly card challenge for MDC on her blog, The Seaside Rose Cottage, and she’s offering some sweet blog candy – think key lime and strawberry. Here’s my card for Cathy’s challenge.


The challenge is to make a card using layers. I pulled out some new Basic Grey Marrakech Paper and stamp set and made a layered peacock feather "flower." Each feather was stamped in black and then trimmed out and layered on top of each other. I then stamped and trimmed 2 other stamps that looked like flower elements to me and layered those on top.

Be sure to visit Cathy's , Melissa, Giovanna, and the MDC blog to see all the fabulous creations!
