Mother's Day Botanical Garden Card

As I told you last week, I would probably be using SU's Botanical Garden Dies again and here I go!  I have been busy making some birthday cards, but decided I had better start making some Mother's Day cards.  I saw this sketch on Pinterest and really liked it and decided to try it out!  There are so many great ideas there.

This is also a great way to use up those scraps!  For my base card, I made it in Old Olive and layered
a 1 1/2" piece of DSP.  I used the Botanical CS paper for my flowers and Old Olive for my leaves.  My circle is punched out with my SU 2 3/8" punch and the sentiment is another one of those $1 finds from Michael's.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I used the clear Wink of Stella on the large flower.  I really liked how it made it pop out.  The other week I went to the annual Scrap Booking Show in Allentown, PA. and picked up some of these decorative pens,  Stamps by Judith was there as well, and I brought some of her peg stamps!  I love those stamps.

I also decorated the inside of the card again with a 1/2" piece of matching DSP.  I really like how it dresses up the inside.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

I'm entering this card over at Jo's Scrap Shack FFC #136 Mother's Day.

Pretty! I love those die cut flowers with their petals lifted. Nice, garden-like colors with the green. Got to have green in a garden. That little sprinkle of tiny stamped flowers is a really nice touch, too.
