I made this card about a week ago. Playing with some new stamps I got. This is the Together Forever Stamp Set. I mainly bought this set for this flower! I LOVE this flower, I think it's the "shading" on it....I don't know! I just think it's really pretty and I still haven't scrapbooked my wedding pictures (4 years now) so I can use this set! Hehehe....But anyways...back to the card.

I started with Always Artichoke, one because it's my favorite color and two because I wanted to make a card out of some old 6x6 pieces I had laying around from a workshop I did. It's hard to see but I stamped/rolled the Forever Flowers Wheel on the background just about half way down. I grabbed some Rose Red from my scrap stash and stamped the circle images repeatedly on the cardstock in Rose Red ink. I then added some Regal Rose ribbon.

Next, I stamped the flower images in Basic Black and colored it in with my markers; Always Artichoke (for the leaf), Regal Rose, So Saffron (which you can't see because of the brads I added later) and Rose Red. After I was done coloring I matted it with So Saffron and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I then stamped "Happy Mother's Day" (from All Holidays) at the bottom of the card in Chocolate Chip (it might be Basic Black, I can't remember for sure off the bat and don't have the card in front of me).

Ink: chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Regal Rose and So Saffron
