Pink magnolias

I originally did the centre of this card for a Make It Crafty Colour challenge, which was water colours.  The stamp I've used is Magnolias for Mum bought from Quixotic Paperie.  I've used Faber Castelle water colour pencils but first I had to use a light coating of hairspray to stop the ink running when I applied the paint!

Once I'd done the image and entered it, it ended up buried in my crafting stash.  I was looking for something (as you do) and found it and hough do you know that would make a lovely mothers day card.  So I set to work doing a simple mount onto black and pink papers to showcase the image.

The sentiment I made was computer generated and just finished the card off with a few self adhesive gems.

Lucky I found this in time for my stash of cards to sell at work :)
