Lovely Flowers Mother's Day

Here's the Mother's Day card that I made for my mom this year.  She loves flowers and birds so I thought this was the perfect card for her. 

The idea for this color scheme came from the Level 3 Hostess gift - Lovely Flowers Bundle and features the colors Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. 

The flower was created using Birds & Blooms Stampin' Up! Sizzlits Die 4-Pack.  I sponged the edges of the flower, curled up the edges, spritzed it with the new Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and then layered it together with Stampin Dimensionals between each layer.  I also included an Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad (in purple) for the center. 


Other accessories include:
 - 2 Step Bird Punch
 - Little Leaves Stampin' Up! Sizzlits Die
 - Scallop Square Stampin' Up! Clear Bigz Die
 - Elegant Bouquet Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Die
 - Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen
 - 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon - Rich Razzleberry
 - Well Scripted stamp set (now retired)

Here's a couple other cards that I made using the same color scheme:
