Best Mother Ever - SUO Challenge #142

Sale-a-bration (SAB) is moving along at a very rapid pace.  The challenge this week is to create something using SAB products.  Since Mother's Day will be upon us before we know it, I thought I would use one of the stamps to make a Mother's Day card.

The products I used:  "What I Love", Botanical Garden Vellum, and Metallic Tape

The flowers were made using the following 3 colours:  Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red.  They were then cut out, the edges sponged with Rose Red ink, and mounted using a dimensional to a 2 1/2" Whisper white circle.  The bird builder punch was used to punch out leaves/branches.  They were sponged with Old Artichoke ink before adhering them to the bottom of the flowers.

The base card is top folded Rose Red cardstock, layered with Whisper White cardstock embossed with the butterfly embossing folder,.  After attaching this embossed layer to the card front, it was lightly brushed with Rose Red ink.  A layer of Botanical Garden Vellum was adhered to the bottom half.  A piece of Metallic Tape was placed at the top end of the vellum layer.

A piece of Rose Red card stock was die cut using the Apothecary die framelet.  The circle was adhered partly over this die cut piece.

Some small flowers were die cut using the metallic tape and added to the middle of each flower, followed by a rhinestone.

Three more small flowers were die cut from the vellum and adhered to the lower right corner of the card.  Rhinestones were added.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: What I Love, And Many More
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Always Artichoke
Papers: Rose Red, Whisper White, Botanical Garden vellum, Old Olive
Accessories: 2 1/2" circle punch, Word Window punch, Modern Word Label punch, Bird Builder Punch, small flowers (from accessory pack), rhinestones, metallic tape, Butterfly embossing folder, Apothecary die/framelit.
