Special Card...

Today just happens to be Mother's Day, so to all those mums out there - "Happy Mother's Day!". 

I've made this card for a special aunt & will post it this arvo, although I must admit it will be a day late, but you know the old saying "Better late, than never"

For my card, I've taken the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping  It also qualifies for my group's weekly challenge, I think!

Group's Weekly Challenge # 119 -   Focusing on Embellishments.  We must have at least 3 emblishments on our project.

Base Card - Concord Crush - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm - Score & fold
Layer 1 - Blushing Bride - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Concord Crush - 4 5/8" x 3" or 11cm x 7.5cm
Layer 3 - Blushing Bride - 4 1/2" x 2 7/8" or 10.5cm x 7cm
DSP - 1 3/4" x 2 7/8" or 4.5cm x 7cm

I stamped the Blushing Bride Cardstock randomly using Blushing Bride Ink & my flower image & adhered it to the base card.

I randomly rubbed Shimmer Paint over the Blushing Bride Cardstock & heat embossed Clear Embossing Powder for the flower outline.  I used Versamark & Basic Gray Ink for the flower outline.  I repeated the same process for the sentiment.  I then adhered the DSP to the bottom half of the card piece.

I added the Brad to the middle of the Ribbon prior to adhering this to the top of the DSP.  I adhered Blushing Bride Cardstock to Concord Crush & adhered the whole lot to the Base Card.

Wanting to make the card "pop" a little more, I added 3 small Basic Pearls to the top RHS, bottom LHS & bottom RHS of the card.  I also decided to add one to the middle of the brad.  I used Crystal Effects to adhere the pearls.
