Happy Mother's Day

I was able to get a Mother's Day card made for my precious 87 year old Mother before packing the craft room to take to storage.  So bye bye craft room for awhile.

For this card I used the new digi image from Power Poppy called Gerbera Daisy (isn't it pretty) and illustrated by the talented Marcella Hawley.  I tried a new technique (to me anyway) of adding color to the image using MS Word.  How fun and love the look, a nice change of pace.  The sentiment is lovely too and is from Pink Petticoat and called Lovely Mum sentiments.  I was able to change the color of the greeting to match the flower color.  Colored the image lightly with Copics and then added stickles to the blossoms for some sparkle and it was done.  I am having an issue with seems to wrinkle the paper/cardstock and it's very hard to get it flattened.  Even with using my heat tool lightly on the reverse side.  I used "tons" of pop dots so that it would lay somewhat flat on the card front, with some success.
