SSSC - Happy Mother's Day

Well, I'm finally starting to feel a bit normal.  About 90% - so it's time to get back in the swing of things!

Here's a card I made last week - before the flu - but am finally posting!  It also fits the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - "Anything Goes" Penny Black challenge.


So......who can identify this flower? Is it a Morning Glory?  I've never used it before because I really didn't know what flower it is!  But - I decided to ink it up last week.  I embossed it in white and used my Distress Markers.  Then I flicked some color at the end.  I used a PTI sentiment and then wanted something fun for the bottom of the card.

So - I looked through my felt and had some coordinating colors and decided to try some rolled flowers.  I hand cut leaves and added some  pearls to the center.

Thanks to those who gave me well wishes!!!  Hope you're all doing well :)

Thanks for your visit!

I think your card is lovely and also your stamp could pass for a morning glory and even a poppy, except poppy leaves are forked like a dandelion leaf and at the very bottom of a long stem. Are the leaves pictured part of the stamp? I'd love to see you do it up as an orange poppy! Just a thought!

The softness of the watercoloring and dimensional felt are a warm and cozy combination.

It kinda looks like a dandelion but yet not so it can be a "lovella" hows that? Whatever it is I love it and I love the colors and the flicked background. And look at you show off, not a single bit of hot glue anywhere dammit!
