Color Challenge 424

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Today is Color Challenge day over at SCS and I decided I needed to get moving on a Mother's Day card for my Mom. Today's colors are:

Primrose Petals, Cameo Coral & White.....perfect for a Mother's Day card!

I love my card but my oh my, it took me over 3 hours to make this! LOL
I have a card that came from my friend, Vicki Burdick and I tried to fussy cut all those flowers and pop them up like she did on hers. Fussy cutting is not one of my favorite things to do! I love the stamp set, Array of Sunshine but I don't think i'll sit and cut those flowers apart like that again! 
I made this for my Mom for Mother's Day since it's coming quickly and I know she will love this with those pretty flowers and lots of pearls!

Color Challenge 424 Card:

Stamps: Array of Sunshine, Field Flowers
Ink: Cameo Coral, Primrose Petals, Memento Black
Cardstock: Primrose Petals, Cameo Coral, Lucky Limeade, Neenah White
Accessories: Square Lattice EF, Sizzix Little Leaves Die, White Pearls, Primrose Petals Ribbon, Liquid Multi Mono, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Well, that pretty much blew half my afternoon so i'm going to go get my meatloaf in the oven for supper and try to work on a few more things for Christmas before we eat. Lots to do yet but getting alot accomplished too!
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!

This is really beautiful. It was definitely worth all the time you put into this card...3 hours? That seems to be my normal time for making a card (I'm a slow card maker...smile)
