Mother's Day card

I bet you've been wondering what I made my mum for Mother's Day.  Now that the day has been and gone, I can show it now (just in case you were checking my blog mum!!).  I had to make mine quite a while ago, as it had to go airmail to Holland!  I can't even remember the last Mother's Day I celebrated in person with my mum, it's been a while!!  So here's my card for my mum:

 It was a card inspired by one I saw on the Stamping Madly site.  One of a number of blogs I love to visit!

I made my own background on a piece of Whisper White CS by stamping the large baroque motif over it with Versamark ink and then clear embossing it.  I then sponged Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Soft Sky and So Saffron ink over it.  The photo doesn't show it so well, but it looks fantastic.  I have also stamped the strip of So Saffron CS with the same stamp in Versamark to get a very subtle background pattern and then sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink.  The rest of the card speaks for itself (I hope!!).

As it turns out, my card features many of the colours in the Just Add Ink challenge this week (JAI16) although I did have a few more colours (just had to of course)!!

The Just Add Ink challenge this week used colours: So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red & Soft Suede.

They're very cute aren't they!!
