Happy Mother's Day and another Sundae challenge!

Happy Mother's Day!

Sunday already, where did the time go?  Oh right, it flew by while I was sick, blech!

Over at Paper Sundaes this week, the challenge is a sketch by Shana over at Two Cute Monsters, and our sponsor this week is Kraftin' Kimmies!  While I have several Kimmie's stamps in my stamp drawer, I felt Nadine calling me, and lucky me, I live close enough to my friend Shana that I could borrow Nadine for my card today!  She has almost every Kraftin' Kimmie stamp that there is!

Here is my take on Shana's sketch:

I can't believe I used a full dozen of my Wild Orchid flowers on this card... wow, I must really love my Mum!  LOL...  I'm trying to find the upside... I guess the sooner I run out, the sooner I can place another order and get more for my stash!  :p

Nadine is popped out of the Nestie oval using the pull through technique, and then popped up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is also popped up.

I am entering this card into 2 challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Birthdays and Celebrations
Alota Rubber challenge #34:  Flowers.

Materials used:
Stamps:  Nadine by Kraftin' Kimmies Stamps, sentiment by Inkadinkadoo
Paper:  Bo Bunny's Back to Basics
Base:  GinaK Pure Luxury Ivory
Image:  Stamped on Strathmore watercolor paper
Medium:  Distress Inks
Other:  Nesties, corner rounder, 3D pop dots, Wild Orchid Flowers, silk ribbon

Thanks for stopping by, have a great Sunday!

Great Mothers Day Card Christine! I love the blue and how you used the distress inks to colour! Is there a tutorial you used for the pull-through technique? It looks amazing! Happy Mothers Day to you :)
