The Play Date Cafe {Mother's Day Wishes} & Simon Says Stamps

I ventured out of the house today, to meet my hubby for lunch. He is working all weekend, poor guy. Anyway, my little hour outing left me pretty sapped of energy. This darn bug just keeps hanging on.


Being sick, I have missed the Play Date Cafe challenge and I REALLY loved the colours they have offered this week! SO pretty!!! I was immediately inspired to create a flower Mother's Day Card. I added some burlap to the bottom of my card for some added texture.


{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Verve
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: The Sweet Thing-Tangerine {MME}, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette
Extras: Burlap, Pearls, Butterfly Punch, Leaf Die


I am also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" Challenge.
