Mother's Day Bouquet

Happy Thursday, Robin here with my design of the week. Where is the time going? Mother's Day is May 11, just giving you a head start! You have plenty of time to order your dies from Dies R Us and make a few cards. With just a change of sentiment this card can be used for many occasions.

I used Taylored Expressions Tag Stacklet 1 and Impressions Obsessions Border Duo 1 as background elements. The Garden Watering Can die from Memory Box was shaded with a grey Copic marker. The flowers were cut from Memory Box Blushing Bouquet die. By using a patterned paper and coloring the stems and leaves with a Copic marker the bouquet came together easily.

The detail in these dies is amazing! I love the little holes in the watering can and in the centers of the flowers. A Pippi Butterfly die coupled with the Isabella Butterfly make a beautiful embellishment.

The card was finished with a twine bow and a sentiment stamped on Impression Obsession's Flags die. Don't forget Dies R Us is your one stop shop for dies. New dies are always arriving so stop by and see what we have!
