Hi... thanks for popping by

For this particular Mother's Day Card I cut an A4 piece of white card, landscape, to measure 7.25".  I then used the first two score lines (A6 and A5 Gatefold) to create folds on either side of the card.
I choose a pretty green paper by docrafts CAPSULE collection for the centre of the card and used a Martha Stewart Corner Punch on all four corners of the paper.  I then adhered to the centre of the card.  I cut and embossed the centre piece using the Gillian Die from SW's Frames & Tags, one in white card and one in a matching green paper from the above collection.  I adhered these together and gently smoothed a little Mustard Seed Distress Ink using the blending tool from yesterday's card (I did not apply more ink to the blending pad).  Mounting foam was adhered to the back of the centre piece then attached to the card.  I next cut several swirls from the Daisy Flourish Rhinestones Collection by Hobby House and added these to the focal point.
I cut and embossed two Wispy Fronds from SW's Finishing Touches Collection and adhered one to both side panels.  I also added a little Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the outer sides of the Wispy Fronds and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkles to the glued areas.
I used a Clarity Stamp for the sentiment and this was heat embossed after I applied WOW Gold Satin Pearl Embossing Powder.  I cut several flowers from the Spring Foliage - Finishing Touches Collection by SW, shaped them using a small ball tool, adhered several layers then used a spray adhesive by Crafter's Companion over the flowers then sprinkled Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels over them.  I added a small gold sequin to the centre of each flower then adhered these to the card. 
To complete I stamped a verse onto the back of the card using another Clarity Stamp for Mother's Day.
