Love you bunches!

Hi! I know it's my second post in one day but I wanted to enter this into some challenges so wanted to post it this afternoon!

This is a card for my Mum for Mother's Day!! Yes, I am in a bit in advance but I knew I wanted to use this image and it kinda fell in with a couple of challenges so I thought I'd do it now!!

So I used this gorgeous Mo Manning stamp from Stamping Bella called "Kissy". It's so perfect for my Mum! I coloured her with copics and I have to say a big shout out to Elaine at Quixotic Paperie for her fabulous copic colouring videos which is where I got my inspiration for colouring this. By just watching her videos, I have gained so much confidence in my copic colouring which I think you can see looking at my recent cards. Thanks, Elaine! I added lots of glitter to the flowers (click on photo to get a closer look!) These gorgeous papers are of course MME Honey Cake, I've used these loads! I've added some blue stitching around the edge of the card, I would've added more only my sewing machine was having a strop! I made the flowers using the Dienamics rolled rose die and the leaf sprig is from the Tim Holtz Sizzix rolled pinecone die which I've just purchased (eagle eyes of you will notice it was in my craft stash wish list!!)

Close up of colouring! Love her puckering up!
