Second post for the day and a Challenge for Mothers Day

So it was a race for the light to get this coloured and photographed, because I prefer painting in daylight if I can at all, the end result is nicer than when using artificial light, and more importantly I am sure its better for your eyes!! I had got carried away and made thee other cards today but they arent coloured yet.. later maybe or tomorrow morning.

So here is another Mothers Day card, and I used Flourishes Stamp Set called Cherry Blossom which you can purchase here. The Stamp set is gorgeous and has sentiments, but for this one I needed a Mothers Day card so I used my own sentiment this time.

 ... some closeup photos showing the colouring and layering.. and no I am not going mad with the cuttlebug - embossed layer - I wanted to use it 'debossed' this time, it looks just as nice and a little different!

the scalloped edges were made using Quickutz cookie cutter border die set which has three scallop dies in it, and its soooo handy for doing the edges of large pieces of card, so I had fun with all the layers!

I am entering this in the Flourishes 'Cut above the rest' Challenge, which brief was to use cut borders.

I had a bit of a 'pink' day today, so will be back a bit later with ANOTHER pink card!
