Mother's Day Card

Hello everyone!

I'm back with a mother's day card.  I've shown a few on Instagram without posing them to my blog just because wasn't able to give the blog post the love it should have but I still wanted to share with you all.

I had a co-worker ask me to make her a couple cards for her but in French.  Since I don't have any French stamps I simply wrote in the French sentiment with is "Happy Mother's Day".  
I was inspired by a card that Laura Bassen made a while back when the HexChart came out and I wanted to give it a try.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Watercolour Friendly Flowers stamp set which is a set that I have wanted for a while and finally put in my cart.  I used my copics to colour these and I referred to the HexChart that Sandy Allnock created and you can find it over on her blog.  It is a great visual to help you find colours that go well together.

I used glossy accents for the centre of the flowers, though you can't see it in the pictures.  I finished it off with Crystal Clear 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
