Card for Mum

Gosh - every week I think I should get organised and do a few more card challenges ... but somehow the week gets away from me and I'm lucky if I even get a card in for the Muse challenge.

This week's Muse challenge is a super card from Kay Miller.

I played around with a few ideas & inked up some die cut flowers.
I started putting it all together and then left an inky thumb print on my card ... a few words were said and I stomped off to do some housework instead.

Turns out I don't have much stamina for housework so I came back to my card and tried again and this is what I finished with.

It's slightly different from my original plan (but isn't that often the case) and I like it much better. It's Mother's day here next Sunday so I will post this to my mum in a few days time.

It looks quite different from Kay's original, but I took my influences from her spray of flowers and the geometry of her background. The background stamp is an old Kaisercraft one I've had for a few years & I'm thinking I must use it more :-)
Cheers, Dianne
