I have shared with you the card I made for my Mother a few posts ago and now I would like to show you the one I made for my darling Mother-in-law.  She is 85 years old, and an amazing woman.  I love her to bits.

It is the first time I have used Asian Artistry, which is a new level 2 Hostess set.  It is a beautiful set and I knew I just had to have it!  You can have it too, with a qualifying workshop.  So, don't waste time - book your workshop with me today!
  I have stamped and coloured on our watercolour paper, cut out and used dimensionals to add three layers to the flower.  It is kinda hard to see in the photo, but it gives the image a real 3D look.  I have sponged Certainly Celery onto Whisper White card stock, darkening as I went toward one corner.

Stamps: Asian Artistry
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Ribbon, Corduroy Brad, half Pearls, dimensionals, adhesive, sponges
