Mother's Day Rose

DRS Designs is featuring the fun Argyle Background stamp (438P) this month and today's Mother's Day card shows you how it works! 

I first stamped the Argyle Background with black ink.  Then I used the Argyle Diamond (441A) to add color to it.  To do this, I first stamped the dark black diamonds using a dark pink ink and then I used a lighter pink ink to stamp the dotted diamonds on either side of the dark one. It's so easy, but I can understand if you need more examples.  Just click THIS LINK to view other posts on the DRS Designs Blog that feature the Argyle Background.

Here are few more details on the card seen above: 
The focal point is the Single Rose (774G).  I colored it with Copic Markers and then sponged pink ink around it while it was in a Nestability die.  (That's how I got the white frame around it.) I used the Mother's Day Greeting (783G) for the sentiment but split it up and put "Happy Mother's Day" on the banner below the image. A little layering and a border punch helped complete this layout. Finished card size is 4.25" x 5.5" 

Hope you enjoyed seeing it!
Have a great day!
