Perfect Sentiment Challenge No.27: Mother's Day Color Story

Welcome back friends for another weekly challenge with The Perfect Sentiment. I know you will love this weeks challenge as much as I did. It's all about creating a Mother's Day card by pulling from the color story we have for you this week.

Before I show you the color's my card for this challenge....
And here's the amazing color story you get to use...

I have to tell you it was pretty hard to not to be inspired by this color pallette..such gorgeous colors.
Love love love these latex flowers I picked up at the CK Convention. I used these in another project I posted about HERE. I used some shimmer mist on the flower just to give it a little extra sparkle. Here's a closer look...

Love how the papers & trims just work so well together for this color story.

One last look...

I have to say that I hope this is one time my mom doesn't read my blog...I am thinking about giving this card to her for Mother's

Now for some awesome inspiration from my fellow DT members....
