Candy-Colored Flowers Sketch

This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches is by Cécile Ribon and it's a perfect one for a pretty Mother's Day card (and "for a Special Lady" which just happened to be the theme this week at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge blog).

I used two sweet little stamp sets with coordinating dies from The Stamp Market, Petite Painted Posies and A Few Words sentiment set. They may be small sets but they are so fun to create with!

I stamped a mini floral cluster from the set for the background, then cut cut banners from PTI's gingham paper using Sizzix dies.

Stamped lots of flowers and leaves from Petite Painted Posies using my favorite A Muse Studio inks and Fresh Inks from Impress. Layered them and added Nuvo Drops on the flower centers. Lastly, a little twine wrap and the sweet "hugs" sentiment. A beautiful card for a special lady in my life. 
Happy Mother's Day!
