Spring Flowers

Today is my first week as Guest DT for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog.  This weeks challenge is Mother's Day.

The Spring Flowers Digi Image I used  is from Robyn's Fettish, the sponsor of this weeks challenge.

I've been using so much Pink lately that I started with the papers first this time. These are nice neutral colors from the Close to my Heart Bliss Paper Pack. It has a soft peach color in the papers so I pulled my copic markers that would blend with the papers, yet pop off the card. The Happy Mother's Day iks from Say It In Style, clear stamps set from CTMH. I stamped it in black and embossed it with clear detail EP.

The colors of the CS are Dessert Sand and Taffy. I used matching Embroidery floss for the Hand Stitching around the card.
I added some stickles to the flowers for some glitz and some half pearls on the left side for some visual interest. I wanted to put some white Fun Flock on my Pussy Willows, but couldn't find it. So as soon as it shows up, I will add it. I think that would add the finishing touch.

The inspiration for this card came from the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge Blog. I had to change it slightly in order to preserve the beauty of the papers.
