Pretty Petals

Whilst I've been off work this week I've got ahead with some of the cards I need over the next few weeks, including this card for Mother's Day. I'm entering  Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper ChallengeDies R Us 'Think Spring' and Allsorts 'Hearts and/or Flowers' challenge.

Card blank: 6" c 6" white silk
Image: Making Cards 'Pretty Petals' (magazine freebie)
Dies: Crafts-Too Presscut 'Mum', Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large' and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large', 
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Dark green linen
Paper: Making Cards 'Pretty Petals' (magazine freebie)

I trimmed the floral paper, layered it onto green card and attached it to the card front.  I attached the floral image to white card before die cutting  and embossing it.  I then die cut 'Mum' from the lower edge.  The image was layered onto a die cut and embossed green scalloped circle and attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut 'Mum' from green card and inlaid it into the topper.

I love the watercolour look of this flower image and background paper and the dark green mats really show the flowers off beautifully. This is a card that any Mum would adore. x
