Mothers Day Flowers

Thinking ahead a little, I decided to do a mothers day card.

I used cardabilities sketch #49 for my layout...

I largely picked the colours based on the fact I saw a bit of purple card sitting on top of my scraps box and went 'oh that'll do' lol. The purple cardstock is from the paper mill, the pink paper was a freebie in a magazine, it has a very, very faint pattern on it, but it's almost impossible to see normally, let alone in the image... I used petaloo flowers and coloured them with dusky rose, rose pink, lilac, lavender and amethyst promarkers. The flourish is a sizzix die cut from a scrap bit of paper and the sentiment is stampin' up. I finished it with pearls from my stash on the flowers.

I'm also submitting this to:
Cute Card Thursday #204 - Flower Power
My Mums Craft Shop Challenge 44 - Swirls and Pearls
Saturday Challenge #173 - Bingo Card
- I used swirls, flowers and pearls.
