Shades of Spring Mother's Day card

Here is a card I designed for Mother's Day. I chose Lavender Lace as the base card and layered a piece of Shades of Spring designer paper on top of it. The flower petals were cut with the Sizzix die Flower Layers. I cut the 3 pieces each out of both Lavender Lace card stock and the Designer paper. Using a lot of layers makes the flower so full and pretty! The flower center is a Circle Fire Rhinestone brad.
A piece of 3" x 3 1/2" Pretty in Pink was run through the Sizzix with an embossing folder.
Next I wrapped a piece of Celery ribbon around the card before attaching it to the card base.
Two celery leaves were cut out with the Bigz Birds with Leaves and Flower die.
The sentiment ( from the Well Scripted stamp set) was stamped with Lavender Lace ink on Whisper White paper. It was punched out with the scallop oval punch and inked on the edges. It was layered on top of a wide oval of Lavender Lace card stock.

This elegant card is very simple to make. Actually, the only stamping is the sentiment, so it can be assembled quickly.

On the inside of the card I added a layer of Whisper White card stock, topped with a strip of Certainly Celery, and then a strip of DSP over that. Next I cut out one of the flower images from the designer paper and popped it up on top with a dimensional dot. I love decorating the inside of a card. It just seems to tie everything together!

Mother's Day will be here soon. This is a great card to get you started.
Thanks for visiting!

I'm not a real fan of the Shades of Spring paper, but I really like what you did here. Very pretty!
