HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Mother's Day is fast approaching and the theme this week at CASology is "Mom". 

The base of my card is Concord & 9th's watercolored notecards - these come in gorgeous colors and are wonderful for creating a quick card.  I cut a piece to 4 1/4"x5 1/2" and stamped the pretty flowers from Gina K's Elegant Florals 2 set with Hero Arts intense black ink.  I used my MISTI to get a good black impression for the sentiment (also from the Gina K. set) in the center.  Copics were used to give the flowers a little more color which would blend with the background colors.  I die cut this piece with MFT frame die and popped the frame up with some foam tape on a card base.  Placed the center piece back to line up everything - had to add a few black lines with a fine tip pen to extend the stems of the flowers to the edge.  Added a few sequins for a little sparkle and done!  Sorry I can't link to the Gina K. stamps as their site is moving and is offline for a few days.
Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.
