Mother's Day

I made this card for this months challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.  The inspiration picture has soft, pretty colours of pink, blue and yellow plus a little banner with "Mum" written on it.  I started with pale pink cardstock and layered onto it some paper from Spring Drop Collection (First Edition), then added pink and blue ribbon near the bottom.  The banner in the picture made me think of this great banner sentiment from Vintage Rose Medallions stamp set (Just Rite Papercraft) so I stamped it with Memento ink onto blending card and coloured it pale pink with copics.  Then I stamped the hat image from Feminine Charm stamp set (Flourishes) die cut it with a Spellbinders Classic Oval, coloured it with copics and sponged some sky blue ink (Versacolor) around the edge.  I die cut pink cardstock with a Spellbinders Opulent Oval and then some pale blue cardstock with a Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval, and adhered them to my card front.  The image and the banner were then added with foam tape.  A blue ribbon bow finished it off!

Copic Colours used were:  B0000, B000, B00, RV00, RV10. RV21, YG11, YG13, Y11, Y15, E30, E31, E33.
