With all my Heart...Quick Quotes cards

Good morning, Alicia here today with some alternative Mother's Day cards.  The cards I have created use Quick Quotes Vellum Quotes and Quick Quotes Phrases and Quotes as the primary element.  Any of the cards I made could be Mother's Day cards or for a special mother figure in your life.

On this card I used some dies, glitter stickers, layers of paper, a die cut frame with pearls, buttons and a flower.  I also added the peachy butterfly as the final touch.  I chalked all the edges with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks.

For the second card I used more layers of paper and die cuts.  I also added some lovely fiber and pearls.  Again, I chalked all the edges with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking inks.

Finally, I created a card with some of the scraps from the first two cards.  I added some punches and as always inked the edges.
