Happy Mothers Day

I meant to have made this card last Sunday but it just didn't happen (I had a cold and just wasn't in the right mood) so it was a bit of a rush this morning to get it done, but I'm very happy how it turned out even if the colours look a bit weird in the photo in real life the corrugated card is a soft pink not salmon pink (just to give you an idea).
The base card is an 8"x8" so Tim Holtz fabulous huge botanical stamp fits ok on this. I firstly used a mixed embossing powder of clear plus a little bit of sparkle, then I blended various distress inks over the top of it. I finished off by adding a couple of the texture fades and diecut Butterfly Duo which I doubled up after I'd blended distress inks and bling on them.

Birthday Card

I can now post this birthday card on here, as the recipient might have seen it on the facebook feed. I truly can't wait until we get some decent light to get good photos. I didn't check the picture until after the card had gone otherwise I would have taken some more.

Using Tim Holtz new Butterfly stamp and flourish stencil, plus , sentiment stamps and plenty of different shades of purple.
 Background: milled lavender, dusty concord, seedless preserves distress inks.
Butterfly: Pickled raspberry, seedless preserves and spiced marmalade distress inks and pens. I finished it off with some flowers that had been inked with dusty concord and spritzed with a purple/black mica spray and added rhinestone brads.

Thanks for looking
