PPC #57 and Hand Stamped Sentiments-For Mom

This week at Picture Perfect Creations is the most marvelous colour challenge! I love Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi, so I was pretty excited to ink up my new Fabulous Florets set again for this card!!!  As you might have noticed, I used Whisper White instead of Very Vanilla...I should have confirmed the colours first instead of going from memory!!! 

I stamped the flowers in Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo, I don't own Pink Pirouette...yet!  I hope to get it soon, I love how soft and pretty it is! 

I also made this card for the current Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge which is a Mother's Day Theme. 

I wanted the card to be fairly clean and simple and so I used the Tulip Frame Embossing Folder to add some detail to my card.  I made it for my mother-in-law, she loves bright pinks and I thought this would be a special card for her!!

Come on by and join us at Picture Perfect Creations!  This colour combo is so springy and fun, I know you will love working with it!
