Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! 

I've been truly spoilt this morning.  We have a double celebration today as it is my Mother's birthday as well.  The children and Granny came into my bedroom bearing gifts for both of us and then we were invited down to a specially reserved table for pancakes.  Very yummy they were too! 

Now that my Mother has received her card I can show it to you. 

I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches which you can see below. 

I wanted to use these delicious papers from the Sale-A-Bration set called Sweet Sorbet.  I always seem to fall in love with the papers Stampin' Up! release for Sale-A-Bration!  You can still make them your own by order by tomorrow and when you spend £45 select them for free!  

My card base is Sahara Sand and I've used mats of Basic Black for a touch of drama.  I stamped and coloured flowers from Fabulous Florets in Crisp Canteloupe using a Blender Pen.  The leaves are stamped and coloured in Summer Starfruit.  I layered the flowers and leaves together, popping the main flower up on a Dimensional, before attaching to Basic Black and fussy cutting out. The sentiment banner is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and die cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I added a large pearl to the main flower to finish off. 

Here's a photo of the middle.  The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings. 

You'll know from looking at my blog, I don't normally do layers or use lots of papers but it was so fun to just go for it.  And after all it is for Mother's Day so an extra lush card was in order! 

This is my lovely goodies.  My daughter made a card and this beautiful paper sculpture.  My my favourite sweets and can you see the little monkey from my new handbag?  

Yummy pancakes! 

I hope all you Mum's have been truly spoilt today too!
