Here are a couple of Mother’s Day cards.

I let two of my favorite coordinating designer papers bring some rich color to this first card.  The sentiment is stamped right on to the pattern.

A single line of embossing at the top of the card adds a little fun.  A rhinestone is placed on the sequin.  I think it makes it look like a sparkly little flower.

On this card the leaves and flowers are stamped on colored cardstock.  They have been colored with Copics and the flowers have been die cut.

I like the look of the lavender cardstock border on the die cut flowers.  Usually I stamp on white card stock, so when the image is die cut it leaves a white border.  However with these flowers, the border blends into the floral image.  And again rhinestones are placed on the sequins.  Just can’t help myself!

    The way you did the border of flowers on the second is such a pretty touch, worked out great on the colored background, so neat to see your birds done so differently!
