Spring Bouquet for Mum by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, it's Julie here today. Spring has definitely sprung here in Scotland and this weekend we also celebrate Mothering Sunday. So I decided with all this in mind to make a Mother's Day Card.

I started by layering up paper which was distressed at the edges and the Mini Italian Flourish was cut out in white card and inked with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.

I then layered on the co-ordinating Italian Flourish Doily which I had folded in to a concertina and opened back up to give texture, it had also been inked in the same way. You will see I used the Trellis Die for the stems of my flowers.

I Love these Bows, a perfect accompaniment to a bouquet of flowers.

I got carried away and forgot to take some more ongoing pictures, so here are the close ups. Notice I have some closed buds as well as flowers about to open to add a realistic look to the flowers.

My Baby's Breath Flowers and Tiny Flower Kit I added a little stickles to their centres.

A couple of angled shots to give you an idea of the depth of the card.

The finished card once again.
