Cupcake Craft Challenge 135 - Flowers For Mum

Well the clock's have changed so we're well and truly going in the right direction for some nicer weather... I love Spring when all the trees start getting their buds and leaves and with are the lovely flowers and colours it really gives you a lift after the winter! So this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge the fab Denise has chosen 'Flowers For Mum' as our challenge... yep it's Mother's Day on Sunday (in the UK)! Easy challenge! We all have a soft spot for flowers!

For my card I've used paper from the Anna Griffin Paper Pack Old Paris Palette as a background, you can find this paper HERE at A Scrap Affair! The lovely verse is a stamp (Penny Black). I've done a little distressing and added some sparkle/gloss to the flowers on the background paper. The swirl is from K & Co (I added the gold pearls) and the little heart is handmade using pearls and Tim Holtz Crackle Accents. Finally I've added a bow and of course some more flowers!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Allsorts - For a Special Lady
Simon Says Stamp - Mother's Day/Girlie
Stampin For The Weekend - For Mum/Mother's Day

Our sponsor at Cupcake this week is Sassy Studio Designs who are offering 4 images to the winner (you get to choose!), and also our monthly Icing on the Cupcake sponsor is Wild Rose Studio who are giving away 2 fab stamps from their Spring Collection!

Thanks for popping by today, have a lovely week!
