Aren't they pretty? So, I combined these with Anne Marie's fabulous sketch for our challenge this week at The Paper Players to make a Mother's Day card full of flowers! First, Anne Marie's awesome sketch:
and here's what I did with all this inspiration:
What do you think? I have to admit, this card made me happy. :-) I was in the mood for a soft, feminine flowery card and this is what developed! I stamped the background image from Postage Due in Sahara Sand ink onto Naturals White cardstock added the flourish from Everything Eleanor in Lucky Limeade ink and a few background flowers from the same set in Blushing Bride (substituted for Pink Pirouette).
I stamped the Everything Eleanor flowers in Calypso Coral onto Blushing Bride cardstock and fussy-cut all three. I added a little sponging with Sahara Sand, a few pearls and some Lucky Limeade organza ribbon from last year's Sale-a-Bration.
I really wanted the color of the flowers on the main panel to pop so I kept the base card and background the same color just adding some tone-on-tone stamping with the Netting background stamp in Sahara Sand. A little piece of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon provides just the right amount of border and texture.
The flourish from this stamp set is so pretty--in fact it's the reason I bought the set(!)--that I just had to stamp it some more on the inside and added a few more flowers. What a versatile stamp set Delightful Dozen has turned out to be; providing this wonderful sentiment for Mother's Day.
It may be a little early for a Mother's Day card but I hope these springtime flowers bring a little big of cheer your way today!
