Inspiration Wednesday

Here's a mid-week inspiration post for From The Heart Stamps.
This time i'm showcasing the card that I gave to my Mom for Mother's Day last Sunday...

I've paired up 2 great floral sets for this card, using the daffodil image from the new Easter Trio stamp, which is this months SOTM, and teamed it up with images from Spring Medley, which was the SOTM for April, 2014.
I made the sentiments on my pc to match.
I used promarkers as my colouring medium, and then simply added top and bottom borders with card scraps in similar colours to those used to colour the flowers. The pink scalloped borders were made using my trusty old SU eyelet border punch.
I added a 'read it and weep' verse inside, then gave my Mom the card, with a bunch of flowers, wine, and a homemade pineapple pavlova, and operation Mother's Day was complete ;)
*except that my husband and son had to give them to her because I didn't want to pass on my cold to Mom, so I wished her a Happy Mother's Day via phone instead.
