4 Crafty Chicks # 87: No Stamping Zone

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge post for 4 Crafty Chicks! Sadly this is my last post as Guest Designer for them. It has truly been a pleasure creating with these talented ladies- they have really fun challenges and I will definitely be joining in on their challenges in the future!
So this week the theme is No Stamping. I thought it would be too easy to incorporate this into a layout, so I made a card this week! I needed a Mother's Day card anyway, so I made a Mother's Day card with NO stamping!! Here it is:
My mom loves yellow so I had to incorporate a lot of yellow into this. I decided to ink the edges of the layers because it just needed a little something more. The 'Mom' cut and the pinwheel were both cut from the Mother's Day 2010 cart. I didn't even realize that cart had this cute pinwheel on it! I was originally going to do flowers and changed my mind when I saw this!
Here is a better look at the pinwheel. I layered 2 Spellbinders die cuts under it. I secured the pinwheel arms with a sparkly brad.
I cut the 'Mom' sentiment with patterned paper, and cut the shadow layer as well to make it pop more, then accentuated some of the flourishes with yellow liquid pearls.
Thank you so much for stopping by today- please come join us with your own masterful stamp-free creations!!
