Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 8 April 2011

Oh what a joy is was to be part of the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team and look at all the cards/projects were made for the "pack a punch" challenge for the last fortnight.  This fortnight's challenge is "something for your mum/hero".
This is the card that I made for my mum for Mother's day.  I didn't think she'd like as she's not really into fairies and the card wasn't green but she loved her card.  I have used my Caron Vinson Sweet Pea stamp called Royal Flower.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I have coloured her with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen.  I cut various mounts out with my Nestabilities, distressing the edges along with the edges of the K&Co papers used for matting and layering.  The petals underneath the die-cuts are from three large blossoms flowers that I bought, I chopped up into individual petals and stuck on.  I'd got about half way round and thought "why did I do this?" but when it was finished I liked the effect it gave.  The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, flowers, a flowery ribbon and some gems (well rather a lot of gems - I nearly used a whole sheet - but if you can't use them in a large quantity on a card for your mum when can you?).
