Time for to get the Mojo pumping again!  For this Mother's Day card, I used a couple of my favorite Big Shot dies (Two Tags and Flower Folds) as well as two of our colors retiring at end of June (Apricot Appeal and Cameo Coral).  I managed to use only one stamp set and the great thing about this stamp set is that it also has a Happy Birthday stamp, so the center of the flower could easily be swapped out to make this a Birthday card for Mom instead.  Plus there are four lovely sentiments to choose from for the inside of your card.  This set is from the Occasions Mini Catalog and available through April 30 only!

I used the Bride Specialty Paper again for my background paper and brayered the right side with Cameo Coral (went a little overboard so it came out kind of dark) and the left side with Apricot Appeal.  Then on the left side, I also sponged on Cameo Coral and Regal Rose.  It is difficult to see the color variations in this picture (ancient camera strikes again!), but it gives it a pretty tie-dyed effect.   You can see it a little better if you click the picture to make it bigger.  To get the petals of the flowers to curl up (difficult to see in the picture), I rolled the petals between a pencil and my finger similar to the way you make curling ribbon curl with scissors. It gives the card a very 3D look.  Enjoy!
