Pearls from Mom

I am a "certified" Papa's girl. But I can't discount the pearls of wisdom I learned from my Mama. Most {if not all} of these "pearls" are kept in the core of my heart and like soft whispers, I hear them specially when I am at a crossroad of this journey caledl life!

For Mother's Day, I really want to make this piece of pearl as the focal point of my card for Mom. It is my way of expressing gratitude to my mother for the love and dedication she gave and still giving us through the years.

The fabulous colors of sea foam, brown, light green {gems} and terracotta are inspired by Embellish Color Challenge with Dimension. I created dimension on this card by using pop-up glue dots under the shell and sentiment. I was also inspired by this week's sketch from Get Sketchy which is just perfect for the shape of the shell.

"There is no velvet so soft as a mother's lap, no rose as lovely as her smile, no path as flowery as that imprinted with her footsteps." - A. Thompson

Thanks Mom!
