The Fabulous Florets stamp set is aptly named - the flowers and foliage really are fabulous. For this card I stamped the tall image slightly to the left of centre, then again on an angle to create lower lying foliage. The flowers were stamped then coloured using ink and an aquapainter. Very Vanilla card stock isn't really intended for watercolouring as it can buckle if you use too much water, but I find that works in my favour for flowers like this as the petals curl up realistically! I cut the flowers out and added centres with a marker when they were dry.
The elegant sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I scored a strip of card stock along its long edges and ribbon tailed it with a square punch to make a banner, then used a stamp-a-majig to position my sentiment onto it.

A friend of mine once told me that when he was a little boy, he decided to make his mother breakfast in bed on Mothers Day. He was quite young and didn't know how to cook eggs or anything so he put some frozen peas in a pan and cooked those. He made her a cup of tea too with water from the kettle although unfortunately he forgot to boil it first. He took the breakfast proudly into his mother's room and sat with her while she heroically ate her peas and drank her tepid tea with every appearance of delight. This story made me laugh but more importantly it taught me that a gift from the heart should never be despised.
Have a lovely day today,
