Mother's Day Card Using Sophia Papers

I certainly hope that everyone had a pleasant day yesterday.  The weather here in the Philly area was beautiful.  I even got the chance to sit on my patio for a little while.  As my Step-Dad always said, "Time marches on" so with Easter Sunday past us, it's now time to focus on Spring flowers! 
I made this card for the 365 Cards Challenge Day 55.  The challenge was a sketch challenge and you can find it by clicking on the link.  I wanted to make a card using flowers.  I work really hard in my garden in the spring and summer and having the opportunity to sit outside yesterday really got me in the mood.  The image comes from a CTMH set called "Flower Pot."  I love the set.  It includes several pots, a window with shutters and all kinds of flowers that fit perfectly into the pots.  You decide the look that you want.  You can color them with anything you wish...I used my Copics.   The "stitching" is from a set a just got called "Stitched Together."  It includes a number of images that give the appearance of hand stitching.  I like to stitch on cards, but sometimes it just isn't time effective.  This set is perfect for the simulation of stitching.  By the way, the pattern paper is from Sophia.  Most people recognize Sophia for the wonderful pinks, but the reverse side is this subtle yellow.  I used Goldrush and Creme Brulee for my accents.  The double sided CTMH paper packets are so versatile. 

I had to share this beautiful tulip that is blooming in my garden.  I have a shade garden so I don't get tulips every year...a true treat!  For Now, Happy Crafting!
