Mother's Day Flowers

Good morning, Steph here and I'm thinking about Mother's Day, aren't you?  My mother always loved receiving my cards and I know she would have loved this one.
I used the Summer Flowers embossing folder.  I love the incredible details this embossing folder creates.
Here's a tip for using this embossing folder:  cut your cardstock to fit before embossing it.  This way you won't damage your embossed piece if you need to cut it smaller.
While the embossed piece itself is gorgeous, I wanted some color, so I lightly ran my ink pads across the embossed sections to get a really great effect.  I used Ranger Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage and Walnut Ink, randomly running the pads across the design.  After I had the look I wanted, I inked around the edges with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Ink.
The sentiment is from JustRite's Hugs & Kisses Sentiments.
I used the larger Joy Foam Adhesives between my layers.  I also added three White Pearls to the flower centers.

Thanks, Steph!  

Just could easily do this same card in your mom's favorite colors!!
