Faith in Nature Mother's Day Card

Happy 1st March!  As it's Mother's Day this month I thought I'd make a Mother's day card.   

Using Real Red as a card base I've added a mat of Very Vanilla then a mat of Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper.  I  sponged round the edges with Soft Suede using a Sponge Dauber.  

A strip of Real Red was run through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and attached.  The centre panel is Real Red and Very Vanilla.  I stamped the flower from Faith in Nature in Lucky Limeade.  I used my Blender Pen to pick up ink from my Real Red ink pad and coloured the centres.  

The sentiment was also stamped in Real Red and is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I sponged the edges with Real Red. 

A few little Basic Pearls in the centre of each flower finishes the card. 

Thanks for visiting me today, I really appreciate it. x
