Happy Mothers' Day

This card has been a work in progress for a few weeks... I stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut my red roses...first, then followed the process of how to use them.  So I decided on a heart in the background - a white die cut heart that I dry embossed with tiny heart EF.  Then I used the die to cut an opening in my front panel, the white heart fitted snug but was a little lost so I smooched the edge with red ink.  The I used foam tape to raise my front panel and adhered the embossed heart to the card through the opening.  I arranged the flowers and used different thickness foam tape attach them.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment and die cut it t suit the size of the words then used the full die to cut a red shape to frame the label.
I am playing along with CAS Watercolour challenge for February - Heart theme.
Stamplorations February challenge - Paint-It-Red.
Also to Power Poppy Power & Spark challenge using the Love theme - because I dearly love my mum and know she'll love this card.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day
