Garden Blooms by Penny Black

Mother's Day is this Sunday and flowers are a part of the celebration!

30-215 Garden Blooms;  40-310 Star Ivy
This delightful flower arrangement is an image included in the transparent Penny Black set "Garden Blooms".  I stamped and embossed the image on some deliciously smooth cardstock and then colored with Copics.  The really smooth coating on the cardstock allowed time to move the colors around until I was satisfied with the look.

I matted the smaller rectangle with cardstock on which I stamped the slapstick background stamp "Star Ivy".  The final matt was polka dotted patterned paper.  A pretty green bow and a few sequins finish the card. 

I am entering this card in the Simon Says challenge this week that is featuring Penny Black flower stamps.

This card will be given to a lovely woman who is not old enough to be my mother, but who has taken us into her family with motherly love! 

My wish is that all mothers everywhere are honored and spoiled this weekend.  And it is a time for all mothers to reflect on the privilege of being a Mom!! 

Thank you for stopping by!!  Enjoy the weekend, however you choose.
