Mother's Day Card

It's May and Mother's Day is just around the corner.  So for the color challenge this week at CAS Colours and Sketches I made a Mother's Day card.
I love the colors Cathy chose - Sahara Sand, Berry Burst, and Soft Sky.  Soft Sky will be retired as of June 1 - so if you love this color now is the time to stock up on cardstock and ink!
 I stamped off  the berry to get two tones but when I tried that with the Soft Sky the second generation stamp was WAY too light.  I ended up stamping the base of the flower full strength and then going over it full strength with the smaller petal.  
This gave some, but not a lot, of contrast.  To enhance the petal I took a very light blue Prismacolor pencil and went over the edges of the petal.  You can see in this photo it adds just a bit of dimension.

Please consider joining us at the challenge this week.  We'd love to see what you make with the colors!

Stamps: Jars of Love
Dies: Swirly Scribbles thinlits, Everyday Jars
Ink: Soft Sky ink pad and reinker, Berry Burst ink pad and reinker, Sahara Sand ink pad and reinker
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Berry Burst, Sahara Sand
