Happy Mother's Day Challenge

This card is for the Happily Ever Crafter blog.  This challenge was "A Mother of a Challenge" where we had to make a Mother's Day Card without florals, pinks, purples, or mauves.  I scratched my head and then this immediately popped in my head.  The embossing was so messy.  I tried 3 different times and that embossing powder clung hard to the pure poppy card stock.  Thanks for looking!

Love your card and how you used different colored polka dots on the background. I did not notice the embossing powder speckles. It is annoying when that happens though.

I'm not sure if I've seen a more perfect bow! That ribbon definitely makes this card feminine and those dots are awesome! Thanks for participating in my challenge! :)

This is great LeAnn! Love the different colored dots BG...why don't I ever think of clever ideas like that?!
M7aAke yourself an embossing buddy from talcum powder and a bit of muslin...it will help the embossing a lOT!

Such a fun and simple idea with tons of impact! Stampin Up sells an embossing buddy for relatively cheap, its the same thing as another commenter made, but less work if you want to go that route. I have it and it really does do its job! Wonderful creation!
