Happy Mother's Day!

I used three different stamps for the first time on this one card.  Since it is my first time stamping in months I decided to break in as many new stamp sets as possible.  I keep seeing a lot of awesome cards using the Gorgeous Grunge stamps and I wanted to try it out for myself.  Not so successful, I had to turn my paper over because I pressed the stamp too hard.  It looked a little busy too on my first try so I simplified it and only used the splatter looking image.  I fussy cut all of the flowers from the Peaceful Petals stamp.  This is not what I had in mind when I started but I think it works.

Happy Watercolor

It is my first time making cards since early February.  It has been way too long.  I've been so busy with work, I haven't had any time to let out my creative juices.  I have a bunch of new stamps sets that I had not opened until today.  When I saw the colors in the ColourQ challenge, I knew I wanted to try out the Happy Watercolor stamp set.  I like the simplicity of it all.
