Two more Mother's Day cards

Another flying visit to post these 2 cards I made this afternoon. The Mother's Day cards are going so well at work that I only have 2 left so here's 2 more to take in tomorrow. Luckily I leave off at 1.30 on Tuesdays so had time to play. The first card is a simple easel card. The stamp is one I haven't used for a while. The Mother's Day stamp was free with a magazine a couple of years ago. I added some glitter to the leaves and used some shiny card candy to the Prima hydrangeas. I used the sketch at Sunday sketch and stamp.

As you can see I used the sketch across the whole card, which worked really worked with an easel. Other challenges are Multifold at Secret Crafter and a glittery spring at Paper Sundaes.

The second card is Coco from Digistamp Boutique. I cut him out ad backed him onto an embossed circle. The background paper is from a 12 x 12 sheet of K & Co which I bought in a sale for 20p. The lovely little buttons and bows were from the blog candy I won at Winter Wonderland where the challenge is satsuma, gold and chocolate. The sketch is from Just Cute Bears. Cupcake want us to keep it simple which is a challenge for me but I have managed it with this card. Teddy Stampers are looking for love and check this out at Papertake who want to see checks.
