Share the Love for Mother's Day

Hi everyone! I hope you are well. 
It's Mother's Day here today. I've had a lovely relaxing time. I spent a few hours with my son and my grandchildren. The perfect day!

I have a couple of cards to share with you for Mother's Day. These two cards I made for friends to give to their mums.

Card #1
I used Altenew's Peony Bouquet to create this card. I was inspired by this card HERE.
I stamped and embossed on watercolour card. I used distress oxide inks to colour the images. This was the first time I had used these inks to watercolour and I didn't really get the depth I was hoping for. Even so, I'm happy with the end result.
I don't have the coordinating dies for this set so everything was fussy cut.

I embossed the sentiment in gold (from the Lawn Fawn Love Poems' set and die cut it out using the banner from the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise die set.
In the middle I've stamped 'Happy Mother's Day'.

I added sequins and water drops. This angle really shows how pretty the gold embossing is.

Card #2
This amazing bear is from a Close to My Heart set called Bear Hugs. I stamped the main image a few times using my MISTI to get good coverage.

I die cut a generic thanks out of gold mirror card and popped it up with foam tape. Finally, I stamped the hearts and coloured them in.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - PINspirational Challenge (Photo - I used the pink and black colours and flowers on the luggage), The Four Seasons Challenge (Spring), Just us Girls (Flowers), Krafty Chicks (Stamp Act), Tic Tac Toe (Die Cut | Flowers | Gold)
Card #2 - Critter Crazy Challenges (Anything Goes), If you give a Crafter a Cookie (Photo Inspiration), Shopping Our Stash (What a Difference You've Made In My Life), Cupcake Inspiration (Mother's Day)


Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Mother's Day!!!
