Dandelion Love

Hello lovely peeps

 Today's card is a quick Mother's Day idea using a stamp called Dandelion 'Love' from The Crafthouse Press. I bought this stamp about 3 years ago thinking it would be ideal for Mother's Day cards. And yes, you guessed it, this is the first time it's been out of the packet.  

I coloured the image in with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils and cut it out.
Brown ochre 82, Vermillion 17, White 1, Medium Grey 97
It's layered onto some First Edition paper and Daisytrail digi paper (Butterfly collection)
The sentiment was done with two different Lili of the valley sentiments (Handwritten Phrases and Simply Sophisticated )

The flowers are punched out with a tiny Tonic punch. For the centres I've doodled in circles & coloured with a white gel pen. I drew on the stems & leaves too with a black fineliner pen.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Sweet Stampin Mother's Day (or Special Lady)

Hi Katrina, this is a beautiful card - your colouring with pencils is amazing and I love your card design - using the two different sentiment styles look gorgeous and is a really clever idea.
