Stippled Blossom Mother's Day - Paper Players

Yesterday I had a medical appointment, and the practitioner, knowing that I make cards, asked meif I had any Mother's Day cards.  She needed one for her mother who is now in her 90's.  Because I only had a few Mother's Day cards left, I made this card just for her mother, who loves the colour blue.
Because it is a Mother's Day card I am entering it in the challenge with the Paper Players here









Because this lady likes the colour blue, I used different shades of blue throughout the card.  The base card is Not Quite Navy, layered with Baja Breeze, and then Whisper White.  The Whisper White is embossed with the Polka Dot folder.  On the lower 2/3 of the Whisper White I added a piece of Tea for Two Designer Paper.

For the focal image, I stamped two floral images using the colors Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy, positioning the colours using the stamp-a-ma-jig.  Then in the same manner, I stamped 2 sets of leaves using the colours Certainly Celery and Old Olive.  These were cut out using paper snips.  Tiny pearls were placed in the center of each flower.

The Whisper White circle was die cut using the Circles #2 die; the mat of Not Quite Navy with the Scallop circle #2.

The sentiment was stamped on the Whisper White circle using Not Quite Navy, and the flowers and leaves arranged and adhered around the sentiment.

The scallop circle unit with the flowers attached was adhered to the card using dimensionals. 

To finish the card, a pearl was placed at each upper end.

I hope this card will be well received.

Here's a summary of the materials used:

Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Delightful Dozen
Inks: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Papers: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Tea for Two DSP
Accessories: Polka dot folder, Circles $2 die, Scallop circle #2 die, pearls, Stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals
