Mother's Day in Pink

Today's card was inspired by the sketch found at Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge and the inspirational photo over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  It made for a great combination for my final Mother's Day card.  In retrospect, I would have stamped the sentiment with the Melon Mambo (Stampin' Up!) color I used for the Petite Petals flower for an additional pop of color.  I do like the way it turned out using the various shades of pink.

Stamp Sets:  Petite Petals, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!), Unforgettable Paper Pad (My Mind's Eye); Accessories & Tools:  Petite Petals Punch, Labels Collection Framelits, Gold Sequin Trim, Pearl Basic Jewels, Crystal Effects (Stampin' Up!)

See the thin gold strands under the flower?  I was trying to tie a bow using some Gold Baker's Twine  (Stampin' Up!).  Unfortunately, I was not have a good experience tying bows at the time and it unraveled from the twine.  Since I try to use up everything, I thought it would be a pretty addition to this card.  Different, right, but I like it.  :-)
