Mother's Day flowers

This is a Mother's Day card I have made using a range of stamps from Hobby Art.
I started my decorating the card blank. I used a light lilac ink pad and a blending tool to lightly distress the edges of the card. I then stamped the script in the same lilac ink pad all over the card blank. The script stamp is from Hobby Art's Decorative Backgrounds stamp set.
I also stamped a flower onto the background. To get a very light impression I stamped the flower onto scrap paper first then second time I stamp onto the card. The flower is from Hobby Art's Floral Greeting stamp set.
To create the flowers I used the Floral Greeting stamp set. I stamped the large and small flower head onto white card with a dark purple ink pad. I used the light lilac ink pad and blending tool to colour the front and back of the flowers.  

I cut out the flower heads. Some flowers I left as a single layer but others I layered up to crate a more detail and dimensional bloom. In the centre I added gold Dimension Pearls.

I cut out a decorate purple frame using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares. Onto this I added a square of white card. I used peeloffs for the greeting. I added the squares to the card blank. Once I had decided where the flowers were going I stamped the green flourishes. I did this before attaching the flower. The flourish stamp is from Hobby Art's Flourishes stamp set.
I added a peel off sentiment inside the card. To finish I stamped the flower heads inside the card and added small blank dots on the front with a black fineliner.
