Mother's Day Sweetpeas

This is what I have made for my Mum this year. She loves flowers and used to grow the most beautiful sweetpeas [I can still smell them!!].

Again I have been practising with my Copics but am not happy at all with what I have done. Mum will think it is pretty so that is the main thing! I have embossed the DSP with a Stampin' Up! Embossing folder for a bit of extra texture and the wording comes from the SU set Occasional Greetings.

I have had a real run of making square cards lately and really enjoy the extra space on these to put things!

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Occasional Greetings and Flourishes for the flowers
Card: SU Whisper White, Groovy Guava and Graphic 45 for the DSP
Ink: SU Basic Black, Memento Tuxedo black and Copic Markers
Other: SU Pearls and embossing folder and butterfly embosslit, Nestabilities, ribbon from my stash.

This is just gorgeous Jean - I love sweetpeas!!! And your colouring is great - you have some lovely soft shading happening - maybe just use colours that are a couple apart in number to get more depth - but I love this - you've done a GREAT job!
I also love square cards too -can't remember the last time I did a rectangular one - LOL
