Happy Mother's Day!

I offered to make a card for my brother & his wife to give our mom for Mother's Day, and he jumped at the chance to give an "Andrea La Vigne Original"! So here's my latest.

I took my inspiration from Operation Write Home's Sketch #152, changing the circle & scalloped circle to ovals, and enlarging the measurements to make a 5.5x8" card:

I stamped the "Violet" stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs on watercolor paper and die cut it with a Spellbinders Grand Ovals die. With the paper still in the die, I inked around the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, and colored the violets with Inktense pencils. I did the sentiment in Photoshop, and printed it directly on the panel. Then I matted that with a panel cut with a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals die.

The green patterned paper is from graphic45's "Botanical Tea" 6x6" paper pad, and the more floral design is from Anna Griffin's "Olivia Collection" 6x6" pad. I used Core'dinations cardstock in 2 shades of purple for the card front and scalloped mat.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Our Daily Bread Design's "Spring Colors and ODBD Stamps"
Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday "Anything Goes"
