Just Add Ink #66

It's that time of year, when for one day "MUM" is No: 1, whether your a Mother, Grandmother or Daughter it is a day to remember or be remembered.
So in honour of that Just Add Ink have set a challenge to Just Add a Flower,
 All the girls on the DT have produced some Beautiful samples to get those creative juices flowing....

As Cherry Cobbler is one of my favourite SU colours, l went with that & Very Vanilla. using the Build a blossom stamps & Blossom petals punch, l stamped on Very Vanilla with Cherry cobbler & over stamped using the stamp-a-ma-jig with Bravo Burgundy & punched out the petals, the under layer of petals is Cobbler c/stock punched & run through the Crimper, for the leaves l used Pear & Old olive.
All of the petals & leaves copped a severe scrunching just to soften the look.
Using the Cobbler DSP l embossed it with the Framed Tulips Emb/folder & also used this on the Very Vanilla centre panel, to finish off l punched a Cobbler Decorative label & stamped my greeting from the "Well Scripted" stamp set & added the lovely "All a Flutter" butterfly, a couple of Basic Pearls and it was complete.

Wishing everyone a lovely Mothers Day.
