Rubbernecker Mother's Day Blog Hop

                                          
It's time for another Rubbernecker Stamps Stampin' Sisterhood Blog Hop!  
We're getting a head start on the month of May with a Mother's Day Blog Hop.   Each of the Rubbernecker designers has created a card we hope will inspire you. 




I chose a soft palette to complement Rubbernecker's Single Leaf Rose.  I also used the Butterfly Inchies Set to stamp directly onto my designer paper, stamping and stamping off to get lighter each time.  Just in case you thought you were seeing double, you can relax.  I stamped the sentiment twice.  Once in PTI Smokey Shadow, then just ever so slightly to the right, I stamped again in Versafine Black. 

Here are all the Hop details:

A Stamp set of your choice!
