Mothersday/Flowers at Digi Haven

Hi all!

Time is flying by, I have been really, really busy, and I don't even know with what! That is the worst part, haven't had a lot of time to craft..
But I did manage to make a DT-sample for the new challenge at Digi Haven. This fortnight we want to see some Mothers day or floral projects.

We also have MyGrafico as our fabulous sponsor for this challenge! They are offering 1 digistamp set for the winner! Just click on the banner below to go to their shop, but beware, they also have TONS of freebies!!!

MyGrafico also generously sponsored a digistamp set to us DT, the Fancy Flower Set, and we all picked a different flower. Everyone had their first choice, but since I was away for a while, I just emailed our BIG BOSS Denise which of the images haven't been chosen. Denise sent me the gorgeous Magnolia image, not knowing this is my FAVE flower! I have 2 magnolia trees in my yard, and boy, I love them!
This is what I created.

At this point, the card might look a little weird, but it is some different kind of Easelcard, let me just show you a side view!
Now it makes sense, right? In the Netherlands, Mothers Day is this sunday, May 12th, so I made this card for my own mom.
I used a template from a Dutch club, called Kaartenkast. I really love the template, I will use this one more often!
The magnolia is colored with my Copic Markers, and just like a real magnolia flower, I tried to let the color fade out to almost white. To do that, I used the following markers
V000, V01, V12, V15, V17.
The papers I used are by Basic Grey, Plumeria collection. I also used a white doily, which I made purple using Distress Ink Dusty Concord. It happened to be the exact same shade of purple as my designer paper! I also used some purple twine.
The sentiment I used is by Nicole Verkooijen, and says "To the loveliest mom".
The pearls I used are from my stash.

That was it for today, I hope you like it! Now hop over to Digi Haven and give my DT-brother and sisters some love too!

Hugs, Sandra
