Mother's Day flowers

Today's make is another Mother's Day card that my auntie asked for - this one's for her mother-in-law...




I've used a lovely flower image and sentiment from the Mother's Day Set from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The sentiment was cut out with a Labels 14 die and then lightly inked with 'lulu lavender' memento ink while it was still in the die.  The paper is Dovecraft and cardstock is core'dinations - all leftover bits from my scraps.  The butterfly was cut with my favourite little Kars punch, and the gems and pearls were from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I don't make so many CAS cards at the moment, but I need to get back into them again - I'm considering having a stall at a local festival... well, I think I will be doing it... so I need to get making!  I've got until June though, so plenty of time really.  Just need to get a bit of confidence and force myself to book it!

Hope you've all had a lovely day :o)
