A Mommy's Day card

I am so addicted to these stamps they are way too much fun to color!  I created a few more cards.  The first one I'm sharing is a mother's day card...  I love this image the mermaid and her little one snuggled up to her back.  What better image to celebrate motherhood.  I decided to go with bright and cheery colors for this one.  I have never been big on yellows and oranges but for some reason I am just loving these colors right now!  I go through phases!  As you can see I went a little rose crazy but I couldn't help myself I used a few of my Martha Stewart punches on this card.  To seperate out the pattern papers and also all the leaves and branches to fill in the clusters.

As you can see I have a hard time deciding when to stop especially with flower clusters.  But that is OK I love them anyways.  The roses are from Iamroses... they are all so pretty I ordered a few assorted packs and luckly they had just the colors I needed.  I love when that happens.  The papers are odds and ends for my stash.  As always I have been inspired by some of the wonderful challenges around blogland here is were I am submitting this card
