Mother's Day Cards

Happy Sunday!

Would like to share some cards for Mother's Day.  They're all the same design but using different papers. 

Have used Papertrey Ink's Quatrefoil die which i've gotten just recently.  Have used a mix of Sizzix and PTI dies for the layered flowers.  The pearls on the button centers of the flowers are colored with Copics to match the papers/inks on each card.

Sidenote:  Speaking of Copics - I've made a pleasant discovery recently: i was looking for a small T-square in the first art supplies store i visited in a building i DO not frequent.  Well, they only have the big T-squares, BUT --- they have Copics!!! i thought these were for sale in the USA only.  They offer a discount if one buys 3 or more :) so i got some colors to match the Papertrey inks i have.  T-square already forgotten -  LOL!

Ok, sorry for the sidetrack :) 

Now on to the cards...

Supply list:  Cardstock - AC; patterned papers - Prima, Basic Grey; stamps - Maya Road, Papertrey Ink; dies - Sizzix, Papertrey Ink, Memory Box; buttons - Papertrey Ink; twine - AC; bling - ZVA, Prima; pearls - Studio 112, Paper Craft Museum; white pearls; Copic Sketch; adhesives - ZIG, Claudine Helmuth Studio matte, AC This to That, EK Success.

I've been debating with myself on whether I should get the quatrefoil die..... but it didn't make it to April's shopping cart =P

And lucky you for discounts on copics! I rarely see them on sale except for Michaels + a 50% coupon, meaning I have to buy it one by one =_=
