Inspired Stamps- Mother's Day Project

 Sketch Challenge (sketch 160)
This is my first time entering the sketch challenge.  I just loved this sketch and knew it would work well for this Mother's Day card. 
Inspired Stamps Mother's Day card using Proverbs 31 stamp set.  All stamped images are from this set (scripture, sentiment  and flower).  As always this set and many others can be purchased at the Inspired Stamps online store
A close up view of scripture and flowers.  I used the rock and roll technique
for the flowers and stamped them in dandelion and rolled in canteloupe, Memento.
I wanted to mimic the flowers i the background paper (lemon flower), DCWV.
I used a card sketch that I found in the blog-o-sphere.  I believe it was at Sea Glass and Sentiments, you can find the blog link on the right side.  I changed it up a little by adding an embossed background.  I picked a Cuttlebug folder that had the same feel as the pattern paper. I cut the flag and oval with Spellbinder dies and the large flag was cut with a paper trimmer and then punched with a square punch at an angle to make the flag.  I used a corner rounder on embossed layer and one corner of the flag.  I tied a bow and attached with glue dots.  In the center of the flowers I added some chrome silver liquid pearls.  I added a splash of color with some summer sun cardstock punched with the scallop border punch, Fiskars under the sentiment flag.
 Thanks for looking and have a great day and please visit the other DT members to see their creations for Mother's Day for more inspiration.
