More Mother's Day


I'm continuing on with making Mother's Day cards even though there's less than a week to go.  It's amazing how many people walk into work, see the card rack and suddenly remember birthdays and other holidays and start flipping through my cards.  I love it!  I'm going to enter this card in the Paper Players Mother's Day Theme challenge.  I'm trying to be a bit more creative but I keep coming back to flowers and butterflies for these cards.  At least I'm using some that have never seen ink before...  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Primrose Petals, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower & vase from Teacher's Notes) Market Street Stamps, (Sentiment from Fillable Frames #4) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Nesties Classic Ovals Large, Classic Scalloped Ovals Large) Spellbinders
Gems:  (Cupcake assortment) Doodlebug
Markers:  (R85, C-1, C-3) Copic

Love the scalloping around the edge, so so pretty and here's to inking another stamp, nothing wrong with flowers at this time of the year!
