Flower Pot cards

Hi crafters, I think I've finally managed to sort out changing all my email address and passwords everywhere now, so it's nearly business as usual. Thanks for all your patience and good will messages.

Yesterday at our Craft club we made a flower pot card, and I made mine with Mother's Day in mind.

When the flowers are pulled up they reveal the insert with the message.

I added a piece of card on the back like a photo frame to support the card to stand upright. I then made another one for my sister to give to her Mum in Law.

Most of the flowers are die cuts, but the pansies were made with the SU large butterfly punch. Two yellow shapes were sponged with lilac ink and stuck on top of each other in different directions, and the centres coloured with write markers and finished with gems.

Recipe :   Card = SU Cherry Cobbler, Orchid Opulence, Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, and Terracotta from my stash
Stamps = sentiments borrowed from Jacqueline and Joan
Inks = Wisteria Wonder, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip, and TH Tea Dye
Tools = Big Shot, Spellbinders shapeabilities, CreaLies die, SU Build a Blossom and Butterfly punches, SU and Martha Stewart border punch
Extras = Ribbon, gems, and padded hearts

I hope the Mums like them?

I've not got alot of time tomorrow, but I will try to show you what else I've been up to, so please call back if you can.

Thanks for looking here today
