Happy Mother's Day for the MIL

It's been a while since UK Mother's day (which is in March, not May like the rest of the world), and I made this card for my MIL but haven't gotten around to sharing it on the blog yet. A while ago I ordered the Lawn Fawn Penelope's Blossoms stamp set and immediately put it to good use by colouring it with Distress markers. Apart of the stamp colouring which does take a while, it was a super quick card to put together. 

I started by colouring and stamping the big blossom stamp from Penelope's blossom using pink, purple and two different green Distress markers. I misted the stamp very lightly with water before stamping. Then I stamped the "mother's day" from Lawn Fawn Happy Everything in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Last, I die cut the banner and "Happy" using Lawn Fawn dies and added a few sequins for effect.

I'm linking up with the following challenges:
House of Cards - add sequins
Make My Monday - May Flowers
Time Out - Flowers (I didn't use the optional twist of kissing)
Just Us Girls - Mother
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Hint of Pink
