Mother's Day Card

This is the card I made for my Mother, but I know she checks my blog once in a while so I thought I would wait to post it.   Also this week at Crafty Creations it is "anything goes", so why not come over and join us, it can't be any easier then that.

The colors on this card are so so pretty in person and just could not get a good picture of it.  The Happy Mother's Day is computer generated and printed on pearl white paper and cut with my Spellbinders.  I struggled a long time with card as I wanted to make sure and so something that left a lot of the background paper
showing.   Here is the inside, also computer generated.

I made the background paper using shaving cream..............I learned this technique by watching a video on Gina K Stamp TV there are lots of fun different techniques there so be sure and check it out.   Click HERE to watch the shaving cream video. 
The only problem is that you can not duplicate it again.  I have a few pictures to share, it is a messy process but so worth it.
Here is my paper plate of colored shaving cream.
I used my Cricut mat scrapper to scrape the excess off the paper.  Here are all the pices of paper I made using this batch of shaving cream.  The light colored one is the first piece I made then I added more colors.
I tried adding a few other things, like the small piece at the top right hand side of the picture I rubbed some Stickles over it, but I am not sure i like it.  I had only 3 colors of ink when I made this so I was very limited, but since I have picked up some more. 
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed this post and will give the shaving cream technique a try.
