Mum's the Word

Very well done, but I'm gonna say the pun is off topic.

Rejected because: Very well done, but I'm gonna say the pun is off topic.

another nice one, shan! I'm not usually a flower person, nor a big design person, but this is very well done. Nice choice of cream, too - the cranberry didn't pop as much.

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Thanks Same here, but my MOM actually suggested I do a "mum" shirt. I had a nice picture of one so I thought why not! I'm glad you said that about the cream, I've been having second thoughts but I really thought I'd wear the cream shirt more than the cranberry version.

Simple, pretty, suitable for wear around town, won't offend your mother or monster-in-law, quite a good design, I must say. Would look spiffy with matching pink shorts in summer. I like it!

Re: Mum's the Word

Well that's fabulous. I wonder how many votes I had before it got the axe. I wouldn't consider Mum a pun, it's what many people in the world call their mother, and I really thought this was a design geared toward mothers. Heck my mum even gave me the idea. oh well...man I hate not having an entry in the derby

How about taking the design, and turning it into a tromple l'oeil corsage?
Or add a picture of a bottle of champagne and a picture of a mother, and underneath write "Choose your favorite Mum".

*sniffle* I love this design. Wish it hadn't been rejected. Could you rework it somehow? Bouquet of mums for mum? or just with a bit of (gasp) text?

Nope, I didn't steal an image off the internet and trace it, this is from my own picture I took just the other day and it took forever to make.

But it's been rejected anyway now because it was deemed off topic.
