and happy Mothering Sunday for all..! and as Mummie is now in receipt of her card thought I would share it here.
It's design certainly owes much to what was out on my desk - namely the Birthday Blooms stamp set, some Watermelon Wonder card stock and Birthday Bouquet DSP and my aqua painters.!
...and with me indulging in my 'go to' pastime of the moment - ie colouring in.. here's the result! Unfortunately not the best photograph .. though have to say it really does look a little better in real life...
I used a complete sheet of the A4 heavy weight card stock, folded in half, to take all those layers of designer series paper, the matted and layered focus piece as well as the sponged banner to top it all off.
Hopefully you can just make out the clear embossing on the centre band and my customary bit of bling to finish.
This picture gives a better idea of the depth of the embossing - so rich looking I think.
and I used some left over pieces of the paper to make a little gift envelope ...
and if ever you needed proof positive that Stampin' Up are always on trend with their colours and styles - my gift came from a well known high street store and just look at the tissue paper it came wrapped in!
if that is not Watercolour Wonder- well it certainly looks very much like it to me and of course I just had to use it, so so complementary, as it were.

well have a great week everyone - me, am fresh from a 'mini-holiday' away - a 4 day sewing retreat, where it was lovely not having to worry about housework, in any shape or form, and just nice to concentrate on some 'me time..'
so here's to quality 'you time' too!
