A Mother....

I'm back with a Mother's Day card for my mother in law.  This is a Unity Stamp set called First Friend, Best Friend, Forever.  I watercoloured using my new Neocolor II crayons.  You might also notice I was playing a bit - staging the photo lol.  This was fun, but I had issues blurring the background even after changing to Aperture Priority on my camera.  But I'm still happy with how it looks.  I didn't have the sequins on the card when I first photographed, they were just used for the scene, then I thought hey - those would look great on the card!!  There's a bit of Wink of Stella on the flower buds for for a little sparkle.





I'm entering this in The Card Concept's Spring Flowers Challenge.

This is such a beautiful and eye catching card and the colouring is so soft. I think your photo staging is great and something I've tried but failed!
