CQC84 Mother's Day

Hi Stampers! 
Last week we did were not able to join my sister-in-law for Mother’s Day and I decided to create a new card for tomorrow’s celebration (well, looking at the time- today’s celebration).  Since she loves yellow, I decided to use this week’s CQC84 colors from the ColourQ Challenge (see  

To create this card:

Stamp the floral spray from Watercolor Trio (retired) with Old Olive (first stamp off on a piece of scrap paper) onto Whisper White.  Color the floral image with SU! markers in Not Quite Navy (NQN), Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the NQN marker to spritz the image and round the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch.  Sponge the edges with Crumb Cake and lightly in the center to antique and tone down the white.
Punch a piece of Daffodil Delight and NQN with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. Layer with additional pieces of Daffodil Delight and NQN (embossed with the Finial Press EF).  Layer onto the stamped image and add pearl strands.
Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake with the Finial Press EF (on the edges only leaving a flat area in the center).  Use a Sponge Dauber to lightly apply NQN over the embossed panel and attach scraps of Daffodil Delight and NQN (embossed with the Square Lattice EF) and Whisper White punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punch the sentiment using the Word Window Punch.
Layer all onto Whisper White and again onto Old Olive.
Stamp Sets:   Watercolor Trio, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  NQN, Old Olive, SU! Markers- Old Olive, NQN and Daffodil Delight
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, NQN, Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice and Finial Press EF, Word Window Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Sponge Daubers, Pearls, Color Spritzer Tool
Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a blessed Sunday!
