Another Mother's Day Card

Hello everyone, good afternoon. I'm still so busy busy but even busier now with some card orders for Mother's Day  .. Luckily for me yesterday, hubby had quite a few football games to watch on telly so he didn't want to go out.. sunny and nice day as it was.. not like today, very cloudy!! Anyway, I thought I would make a quick post and show you one of the Mother's Day cards that I did.  


For this card I used again the MUM large clear stamp from Woodware which I had got from NEC in March. I inked it with one of my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. For a change I did the background myself this time, using my Tim Holtz distress inks and a clear stamp set that I had won from Cebelica's candy some time ago. The large flower and butterflies were also in this set and I coloured these with my promarkers. I loved how it turned out, it's good to try something different sometimes.
Now this is the same card.. Can't understand how the colours came so different!!
