Mother's Day



I used up my very last bits of blushing bride dsp to make the flowers on this card. I silver heat-embossed the Inkadinkado mother's day sentiment and added 2 die-cut Cheery Lynn mini flourish dies to the sides done with my Big Shot and some dark gray snippets of cardstock. The punched flowers were done with 2 different sizes of SU! flower punches and dotted with clear gemstones in the centers as well as randomly on the blushing bride panel. The beautiful background paper was bought pre-embossed and makes the most elegant cards in my opinion.

I'm entering this into the following challenges :



Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - use more than one die or punch



Thanks for checking in today - I hope you're having a wonderful day!

LOVE it!! Pink and grey is a so elegant combo, and you has made really a big strike with your design and this beautiful embossed paper for background! I still have a little piece of that one you sent me, and I love it! :)
The swirls and the little flowers are just delightful and the blushing bride panel with the sentiment and the clear gems add other elegance to the whole card!
