A Lil More Secret Garden

It's actually quite funny that I'm making so many things with the pink/coral shades from the Graphic 45 collection. But it seems to be what is in my head or what I'm being driven to do by my friends! 

First up is a Mother's Day card. 

I used one of the six cards from the 12x12 May Flower's paper as well as a couple of strips of  the 8x8 Secret Garden paper.

Some flat back pearls and lace bridge the two papers.

I used the Spellbinder's "Ribbon Banner" die to create the sentiment and unfortunately, the stamp purchased at Archivers yesterday has an smudged  company name. I'm just glad that it fit in the banner, LOL! I inked the banner with Distress Ink, (spun sugar) while the die was still on the paper. I both cut and embossed the banner.

The flower is from the Secret Garden collection. Graphic 45 now sells matching patterned paper flowers in packs. I cut the petals on all 3 layers in more towards the middle and rolled each petal in the end of a paint brush handle.  Then I gathered a piece of lace and put it behind the assembled flower. I made a bow our of more lace and added a Wild Orchid Craft white rose!

I lost my mom years ago, but there is someone pretty special in my life that deserves this card!

Hope you like it! :)  Check back tomorrow for a layout and I've got another one of my chipboard projects running around in my head! Have a great day!
