Anyway, I got onto my Mother's Day project and what I came up with, is sort of vintage .... that is .... I used the Vintage Vogue stamp set ...
Then, I decided that it needed a little treat bag to complete the set
The treat bag features an accordian flower and a punch art flower, 2 little techniques learnt at Swap Sisters.
Cardstock: Whisper white, Pretty in Pink
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue set and jumbo wheel - the sentiment was typed in Word and printed
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Accessories: Top Note die, Polka Dot embossing folder, PP ribbon
Non SU: Pearls, white organza ribbon, retro flower punch (bag)
So, for some more inspiration head on over to the Just Add Ink challenge blog and be inspired by the very talented Design Team!!!

I received a "Thank You" gift from Swap Sisters for my stint as Guest Designer for the month of March, which was an experience that I relished and thoroughly enjoyed ... to my surprise and delight, I received this in the post:
So a great big huuuge "Thank You" to Swap Sisters, Sue and the Design Team.
Now, continuing on there is a Colour Challenge at Swap Sisters, your not gonna believe these colours:
With these bright colours .... I felt that that only things that look great in brights are .... Flower's, but beware, this is bright .... A Flower Pot Card ... my first attempt and happy to say, not too difficult at all, just fiddly ....
I made up the colours in Cardstock (but used YoYo Yellow instead of Summer Sun) and as I did not have the inks to match I used the next closest match - Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Regal Rose.
All the flowers were cut out with the Circle Scallop Punch and Boho Blossoms Punch, and the faux buttons were made with the 1/2" circle punch (5 circles glued together and topped with Crystal Effects), and sponged edges.
Oh by the way, if you would like to have a go at the Flower Pot card ..... great for Mothers Day, I got this tutorial from Stephanie Luman's Blog.
