This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Mother's Day
Here's some inspiration:

It is a step card for my Mother in law. The first step card I have ever made my friend Janis encouraged me to make one this week.
It is made from an file  cards for mom . 
The patterned papers I used are all from Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic".
All the letters and words are cut out in white and then I used the Creative Inspirations shimmering paints to finish them in the colors that I wanted them

For the burgundy letters I was going for the ombre look. If you are not familiar with it, it is where the colors are not even usually it is a graduating unevenness I went for the unruly unevenness I love how they look

 I used  Creative Inspiration  Fairy dust paint for the word Mother's, the background letters of day and the scroll at the bottom.
For the word DAY I used creative inspirations Canary

I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great and blessed week!
