Mother's Day Monochromatic for April Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for April 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I chose Mother's Day for my theme. I wanted to give a nod to one of the soon-retiring 2014-15 In Colors--Tangelo Twist.
I made my Mother's Day card using just that color, so monochromatic. My neutral coordinating card stock color is Very Vanilla, because I think it looks better than Whisper White with the very bright Tangelo Twist.

So then, the perfect accents for my colors are 5/8" Striped Cotton Ribbon in Tangelo Twist, the Very Vintage Designer Button, Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine and Venetian Crochet Trim.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The background "splash" stamp and the banner stamp is from Timeless Textures, which I have heard will be carrying over in the new Annual Catalog in just a few months!

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Patti, I love monochromatic cards. This is a nice farewell tribute to the retiring In Color. I love how you scrunched the Venetian Crochet Lace. Any Mom would love to receive this card!
