C.R.A.F.T Challenge 40 - Mothers Day/Flowers

The challenge this week at C.R.A.F.T. is to make a Mothers Day card or flowery card or both!

The prize is some handmade flower embellishments and a gorgeous Stamping Bella stamp.

I've used an A5 card for a change. The image is Embrace by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers, and some Stickles added to the flowers and butterfly. It's then been cut with an oval nestie, and matted on a scalloped oval nestie shape in blue pearl card. I've added a sheet of matching pearl blue card behind the chevrons, and some blue gems. I've cut 2 pieces of pearl white card, which I've run through the Cuttlebug with a circles folder, and added it either side of the chevrons. The letters 'MUM' have been coloured with Versacolour blue lagoon ink. The blue ribbon is by Fancy Pants, which I've wrapped round the pearl card and tied in a bow.
Hope you can join us at C.R.A.F.T. this week. Entries to be in by 8pm Wednesday. new work only please.

Challenges I'm entering this card into:
Magical Crafts Challenge 9 - Something for Mum
Ai Factory Challenge 26 - 'B' - blue, bow, bling
Tellens Place Challenge 8 - Bling it on (I've used lots of gems and stickles)
Simon Says - Mothers Day/Girly
Crafty Catz Challenge 21 - fancy edge and ribbon (chevrons are fancy)
Cupcake Challenge 80 - Round and round - circles (lots of circles in the embossing)
Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge 35 - (I've turned the sketch upside down)
