Porcelain blue rose

Good morning!  How is the weather where you are?  Bringing Spring flowers to you ...I hope!  We have had some very warm weather here in Austin, but yesterday evening the temperature dropped 40 degrees!!!  It's in the 50's now, quite chilly for me :)  I'm not complaining, because I know that this will be very short lived.
Onto card business...I used the Mojo sketch, #189, from Verve and made this Mother's Day card for the contest going on this week.  I gathered some K and CO. papers from the old stash to create the fun and feminine greens and blues theme and used some Copic markers to colour the flower from the Verve set "One Person".  I stamped the flower twice and popped the center of one of them onto the full flower.  I also got to use some new-to-me Spellbinder dies, the eyelet square and the beaded circle to create some great frames/accents for this card.  Most edges were sponged with PTI Spring Moss and the border dies are a new Memory Box steel border die.  The sentiment is also from the same great set and I stamped it onto a ribbon die from a CuttleBug set that I have had for quite a while.  The bakers twine is Martha Stewart, very old in the stash, and a perfect match to these papers.  I finished the card off with a little layered hand cut banner and added some K and CO. green rhinestones.
Thanks for taking a peek!
Hugs to you all,
