Time to get my Mum's Mother's Day card in the mail, as it is next Sunday in the UK. I started by sprinkling some Scarlet and Brilliant Red Brusho crystals on a wet glossy white piece of cardstock. .... then pink seemed to evolve! 

I stamped the lilies three times in StazOn black and cut them out using my Brother Scan N Cut (sure beats all that fussy cutting!) I then used three different shades of pink crayons and an aqua pen and colored the lilies. After they were dry, I applied Versamark all over them and heat embossed with Clear Detail. This gave them a lovely shiny look. I used a Sakura Glue Pen to apply Cyclamen Glitter to the petals and then some Dimensional Glue was used to add pink glass beads to the flower centers.

The Brusho background was cut with Spellbinders Crisscross die. I die cut the pink cardstock  with Spellbinders Branching Out. The lattice was attached to the back of the frame along with a piece of wide organdy ribbon before being layered to a piece of light pink cardstock edged with 3/4" Tear-ific Tape. Bubble Gum Glitter was applied to the sticky edges.

The two small heart brads on the tag were heat embossed with Raspberry Tart. The two glass heart buttons were heat embossed with Princess Rose. The dark pink button was already that color. The sentiment, from My Rose Garden Set was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Raspberry Tart. It was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Grommet Tags, then sponged with Memento Rose Bud and attached to the background with the brads. The background was then attached to a white card base.

The white organdy ribbon was sponged with Memento Angel Pink before being made into a bow and threaded through the buttons. It is all attached to the card front with Dimensional Foam.

The lilies were also attached with Dimensional Dots.

Well, that's it for today. Early Happy Mother's Day to all you Brits!
