Baroque Mother's Day

Here's the card I have made for MIL, and it was after I made this one that I realised Mther's Day was a whole extra week away. The colours for this card were inspired by some bedding I saw in Myer made by Kas Australia, but unfortunately they don't have it on their website and I have been unable to find it elsewhere. I think (going by my scrawled note on the back of a bus ticket...) that the bedding was called Vivid something, though it doesn't look very vivid to me and was just stripes from what I remember! Anyway, my daughter Tiarna and I agreed that the colours were Close To Cocoa, River Rock, Bordering Blue and Whisper White (yes, my daughters know SU!speak too, LOL). All of the gorgeous floral and swirly images are from the Baroque Motifs set and the sentiment is from Occasional Greetings, stamped in Chocolate Chip. In the center of the large layered flower is a medium Ice Rhinestone circle brad in blue, and the flower is popped up on dimensionals (what a surprise!)

This is lovely Carol...these hues are different for a Mother's Day card but I like it!

BTW, we can get all those flavours of licorice too (plus chocolate covered...I was tempted!).

Cheers!
