Flowers for Mum ....

....  Good morning!  It's absolutely beautiful here today - the sun is shining and I can hear birds singing.  Our clocks went forward at the weekend and it was so nice to have a light evening yesterday - I forgot it was almost 7.30pm - it was light!!!!

This morning I've a clean, simple and pretty card to share with you.  I've used the colours from this week's Paper Players challenge - PP#235 - they are so pretty and perfect for my flowery card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - You're Wonderful
Inks: SU - Crumb Cake
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

It's Mother's Day in the UK on Sunday, and I only remembered (well was reminded) yesterday.  This card is for my Mum, and I'm safe sharing it here now as Mum doesn't do computers!!  This card, and my mother-in-law's (check back on Wednesday for that one), are both in the post and I'm hoping that they'll get to the UK in time.

This card came together really quickly.  I stamped the big sentiment in the centre of the card.  I stamped the flowers onto scrap white card and coloured them with Copic markers.  I left the smaller flowers as they stamped and simply cut round them and adhered them to the card.  The larger flower stamp was the wrong shape for my card, so I cut it into pieces and adhered to the card in the position I wanted!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of kraft card and stamped some more flowers on the white panel.  I left a space for my message.

I added some sparkle to the flowers on the front of the card with clear Wink of Stella - I love the subtle effect you get with these pens.

I drove into Northville this morning to get this card into the post.  It was a lovely journey today - bright, clear and I could actually see patches of grass appearing on the side of the road.  At the moment, it's a bit brown, but it won't be long before it's all green.  I love spring!  That's all for now - have a great day.
