Mother's Day Card No1

I have made a few Mother's Day cards this year so I will post a handfull on here for you to see.

This one is for my boyfriends Mum. I have used some gorgeous cardstock from DCWV Glitter Stack, I am a huge DCWV fan! then used some coordinating papers from a Dovercraft Designer Papers pack for the trim and sentiment panel. then layered everything up using foam pads. Added a couple of layered up prima flowers and blinged up the edges with a bit of Diamond Stickles and finished off with some flat back pearls. I stamped the sentiment using a lovely stamp from Stamping all Day with Versamark and used detail white embossing powder, I really like this stamp, it is a lovely fine text and seems to give a perfect impression every time and when used with detail embossing powder or a quality ink it gives a great finish!
