Mothers Day Card

I go to jewellery making workshops on Saturday afternoons and yesterday we made some little beaded tassels. I chose indigo and gold beads for mine and the deep blue made me think of iris, one of my favourite flowers. I decided to make a Mothers Day card using a gorgeous iris digi stamp. Huge apols but I can't remember where it was from, I try to be organised when saving digis but this one slipped through the net.

The bp is from an Artylicious cd (Seasons Greetings, I think). The image is coloured with inktense pencils and highlighted with a little shimmery chalk and then matted and layered on to blue silk mirri card and gold mirri. The ribbon and brads were from my stash and the sentiment stamp is from Elusive images.

This card is for 3 challenges:
Truly Scrumptious: A sketch challenge with the option of 'good enough to eat'
C.R.A.F.T. challenge which is Mothers Day/flowers
Pink Elephant: which is to add Green.

Thanks for looking
