Pretty lady Mother's Day card

This card is my post for the challenge of at 2 Creative Chicks

I have matt and layered a white 8x8in white card with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious folder. I die cut a trellis in red with a Cheery Lynn die and backed it on plain white card. I stamped with a Julie Nutting stamp. I like doing this with the spotty paper, I think it makes a fab dress something I would love to have in my wardrobe! I layered parts of her dress to make it stand out. I coloured the other elements with my Spectrum Noir pens. I have printed a sentiment and cut it with a Go Kreate die and layered it on a red scalloped oval. I die cut the flowers using a Cheery Lynn dies. I inked the edges of the flowers and added an embellishment to the centre. I completed my card with flat backed pearls.
