More Flowers for mother's day

 Hello there! 

Well more flowers here today for the mother's day challenge over on the Countryview Challenges blog. This time I have used the same Kay Carley set as last time - but chose the muscari flowers. I love muscari - they were the main flower in my wedding flowers/invitations when I married Shaun many moons ago. 

I started this card by making the background - I used a lavinia stencil first of all and used distress oxide tumbled glass in the background - I think my sponge must have been dirty as it doesn't really look like tumbled glass. Then I used a Kay Carley stencil to stencil in some background muscari before stamping and colouring the main images. I used clean colour pens to colour the stamped images. 
There's still plenty of time to join the challenge - just link up here.
Big hugs
