Mother's Day Card for Mom

Happy Mother's Day! I hope all you Moms out there had a super day!! I made this card for my Mom and gave it to her yesterday when we were over for a visit. I did make one similar the other day using this same paper and layout. With the one from the other day, I colored the bench in with CTMH markers and had a really tough time with them turning green when I blended it with my aquabrush (another reason Copics are on my wish list:-)) So I used Prismacolor pencils and OMS this time for the bench and am a lot happier with the results. I had this paper still out from my last card to and really liked it, so just went with it! I used CMTH markers for Tilda and SU pastels for the grass and sky which I now see didn't show up very well in this pict, but it's there I promise. I picked up these buttons a couple weeks ago at the scrapbook store in Okotoks when we were over visiting my parents. The colors are great, very trendy, so they match a lot of the fun lines out there now.
Well off I go to carry on my evening. Hope you had a great weekend as well. Thanks so much for stoppping by!
