Flourishes Mothers day card

Totally Gorjuss Challenge had this wonderful sketch, so I started figuring out what I wanted to make with it!  Love the clean and simple look to it!

I had some time while the kids were coloring, so I stamped and copic colored (R81,83,85) these lovely flowers from Flourishes...I just love Cherry Blossoms, and so springtime that I had to do it!  I found that Flourishes Blog had a Mothers Challenge, so I decided to make this mother's day card, my second this season, so I guess I might have to let my husband choose which his mother will get....I am guessing this one!  :)

I couldn't figure out the embellishments to add and use to this stamp and sketch, so I saw that Totally Papercrafts had a Bingo Challenge, so I went with the Pink/glitter/pearls combo

Used Glitter on the centers of the Flowers, pearls actually covered holes, which were not cut nicely by my edge punch...looks nice this way anyways!  :)  Cardstock base and lt pink are Papertrey Ink.  Oval cut with Spellbinder Nestie using the OUT OF BOX techinque (tutorial found at splitcoaststampers.com)  The small sentiment by the flower is from Tiny Tags (papertrey Ink).  And finally, the Background paper is Echo Park Springtime 6x6

Finally, I did use my cuttlebug, which has been my favorite tool recently, so I entered into Simon Says Stamp Challenge for that!

This is definately a spring time card, so I am also entering it into Karen's Doodles Challenge, Crafty Creations also has the Signs of Spring ChallengeCupcake Craft Challenge: Spring is in the air,and Full of Flowers for the 4 Crafty CHicks challenge.

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed!
