A Couple of Challenges

Hiya, Here is a card I made for my mom's birthday and for a couple of of challenges.
My mom loves flowers and plants and has a really green thumb, I didn't get that from her, so I will just have to color them on paper.
This week Brenda is hosting the "Free for All Friday Challenge" over at Stamp TV. Use a flower stamp and two different shapes on our card.
Also entering this in Joan's challenge over at Joan's Gardens. To make a standard size Birthday card with pink, green and some purple. Distressed edges and some piercing.




My piercing and distressing didn't show up very well, so here a closer view. Still didn't show that well, I guess it is the dark color against the lighter back ground.


The images is from Gina's stamp set "Seeds of Kindness" and the sentiment is from Theresa's set " Mountain Wilderness" both from Gina K. Designs.
I colored the image with Copic's, the DP and card stock is Gina K. Designs. The die are Spellbinders.
Hope your day is going well and thanks for stopping by.
