Mothers day double diamond card.

Hello again, twice in one night I'm on a roll. Or I wrote the last post a few weeks ago and forgot to post?! 

This card was great to make. I was asked by a very good friend to make a mothers day card, so she could send it home to Poland. I obviously said yes, as it was another excuse to hide in my craft room lol.
 The challenging part was finding out what she wanted, I was given a card fold from a previous  card I had made and a colour red but you are all switched on cookies you guessed that right? 
So I started by selecting my image and colouring in using my promarkers from letraset, and folding the card base.
Then I started thinking embellishments so I made the roses.
I have a tutorial on how to make these paper roses here, the picture shows how I build them up in different colours. I had to make two at a time in order to achieve this look. I then thought  about the sentiment I used serif but any package you have to type with is great.
I felt the hearts on the cream backing paper fitted quite well, but to tie that in with the sentiment I stamped in clear ink then brushed over with mica powder. Then I put some ribbons and butterflies on, then layered everything up to create the finished piece.
