As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I decided to create a floral Mother’s Day card for the challenge this week.  It was last month here in the UK but I know elsewhere in the world it is in May so I’m not entirely behind with this card!!!  I used the pretty Fronds stamp set from Stampendous to create a simple bunch of flowers – they could have been picked fresh out of any English country garden!!  I stamped them in a light ink then used Zig Clean Colour Markers to colour loosely over the image.  To give it a more water coloured appearance I went over the ink with a water brush.  I die cut the panel with the Scalloped Dotted Border die from Avery Elle and finished with some twine and a few sequins.

Make it girly
