Mother's Day Blossoms















This blossom stamp is an unmounted one and I can't find the packaging to tell you who the maker is. When I find it, I'll come back and edit the info.
I colored this in Copic markers using R11 Pale Cherry Pink, RV21 Light Pink, R20 Blush and B00 Blue Frost (must haves), YG95 Pale Olive, YG67 Moss, Y17 Golden Yellow, and YR24 Pale Sepia.
I embossed the leaves from the Stampin' Up hostess set God's Beauty using Versamark and clear powder. I've been doing this a lot lately, it gives the card a bit of texture while still keeping it flat and mailable. This card is on it's way to NJ for my husband's Nana. Sentiment is from SU's All Holidays stamped in black.
Cardstocks used were Whisper White, Basic Gray, and Blush Blossom.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!!

This is very pretty Joanne. I think that the font on this MD sentiment will always be my favorite. I have used it for all my cards this year. Great job.
