Mother's Day card




This is the card I made my mom for Mother's Day. It is based off of the Ginger Blossom page 169 Item # 110697 designer paper colors. I also found inspiration from these cards. I love the color combination. I never would have thought of adding the Certainly Celery color, but I am really happy with the way it turned out.
I colored directly onto the Whisper White with Stampin' Up!'s markers in the rectangle, but I colored directly onto the stamp and huffed for the circle. This gives a watercolored look and it is not as bright.
All supplies are from Stampin' Up! except for the ribbon and the sentiment:
