Mothers Day

Evening Folks
This is my second post for today.  Spent a lovely morning at one of my local craft shops - Sir Stampalot.  They had a demo day and had the lovely Claire from Molly Blooms demonstrating.  Of course, a few things just had to fall into my basket lol.  Then spent the afternoon with my youngest daughter who is home from uni for the weekend to celebrate a friends birthday.  Did get a bit of crafty time towards late afternoon.
For todays card I have used some gorgeous flower stamps from Little Claire's to create a Mothers Day card.

I made an easel card which I really love.  Used pink and purple as the colour combo.

Used purple coredinations card and matted a piece of pink backing paper onto it. I punched round the pink paper to give a lacy effect.  Although you can't see it in the photo the pink paper has lots of lovely pink flowers on it that match the main image.  The image is a Little Claires stamp set called Gerbera.  The large and small flowers were coloured in promarkers.  I added glitter and a brad to the large flower and little mini buttons to the centre of the corner flowers.  I had some flower shaped buttons which I added to the corners and some lovely bows for each side.  You can just see it but I also added some ribbon behind the image panel.

For the stopper of the card I used some coredinations card topped with lace, ribbon and a sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it out using one of my dies.  I also added a punched butterfly and lots of gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
