Have a Happy Birthday Lily.....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you ALL had a FABULOUS Holiday Weekend!
I actually took some time to play Badminton with
my son and talk to my older boys on the phone --
We also celebrated my Mother's Birthday which was
on Friday - We ate yummy Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake!
It's sooo bad for me, but it tasted sooo good! :)

Since my Mom's Birthday was Friday, I thought
I would share the card I created for her - 
She really liked how it turned out! :)

I made another CAS card using my Blending tool
and did some coloring as well! :)

I still need to work on coloring - a never ending job really! LOL
 But, I think it still turned out pretty nice - :)

Recipe for this card -

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Silhouette Adhesive LGN
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry,
Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade
Triangle Frame SVG - Silhouette Store (#73438)
Stitched Card Mat Die - Die-namics (Blueprint #13)
Sentiment - Technique Tuesday (You Did It)
Versa Mark Ink
White Embossing Powder - Joann Brand
Ranger Round Blending tool 
Stamped Lily Flower - Craftin Desert Diva's (Botanical Layers)
I used my Scan N Cut to cut the flower out -
I used Pro-Markers to color the Flower
Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
Sakura Glitter Gelly Roll Pen on the tiny dots

I'm Entering the Following Challenges -

Little Scrap Pieces  - Show it off Saturday

Your background looks amazing. I plan on working with watercolors to try some different strokes/textures. It is cool how the background comes out different every time.
