Best Mother Penned and Painted ~ CCMC455, JUGS390

Hey there stampers!  Welcome to my blog featuring this weeks Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge!  I also used the inspiration photo from Just Us Girls #390.  I was mostly inspired by the colors.  

Mothers Day is quickly approaching and I thought this card was certainly pretty enough to fit into that theme....I mean, what mother doesn't like pretty flowers?  
I lightly stamped the outline flower image vertically down the left side of the card to fit the vertical strip from the sketch.  I also used a piece of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty paper, sponged it with Smokey Slate ink and then layered the flowers, stamped with Melon Mambo ink on top.  I think the diamond pattern on the specialty paper sort of looks like a trellis.    
Lastly, I stamped the "best mother ever" greeting from {And Many More} in Basic Gray ink and then added some white enamel dots. 

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Penned and Painted, And Many More
Ink: Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, Cucumber Crush, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Paper: White, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Irresistibly Floral Specialty
Accessories: White perfect accents

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
