flowers for mum

Another new week, more new challenges...

I've done a monochromatic card, with yet another flower stamp.

This time, the stamp is from Papermania's oriental collection. I used distress ink to highlight the image. The buds are done with a glitter marker, and the blooms with marker and glossy accent.

The paper flower is crafted from daisy punches, to which I added a button and glitter glue. The background is some lovely kraft wrapping paper I found at a local store.

I'm entering this card for the following challenges:

Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge #6 Mother's Day
Simon Says Stamp! - Mother's Day / Girlie Challenge
