Spring fresh Mothers Day Card

Hi Everyone,

Well this card i made to enter in a couple of challenges. It is not Mothers Day in Australia as yet but it never hurts to get started early.

I wanted this to have a spring feel so went with a colour scheme of yellow and green with white pearlescent card and it does have a nice fresh feel i think. I wanted the image to have flowers and to be suitable for Mothers Day and i came across some printed LOTV images i got free in a card making magazine a while back. I coloured this in with Copics and Gelly rolls. This was not suitable blending paper/or card so i just used single colours and highlighted certain areas with my clear star Gelly roll to give it a little sparkle where the light hits.

I used a sketch by Charisma cardz which is there challenge this week and i just slanted my yellow rectangular section slightly to give it a little bit of difference, it just looked a bit blocky to me and we all know i like to be different :)

I adhered it all together and here is my finished card...

For this card i used...
White Pearlescent card stock
Yellow and Green Patterned papers by Frencheville
LOTV Image (this came free in a magazine)
XCut die
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Clear Gems
Green, Red and Clear Star Gelly Rolls
Copics E57, YR16, Y18, YG17, 0

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges
