Flores Suaves Mother's Day Card

Getting ready for my Mother's Day Card class on May 3rd.  I had purchased the Flores Suaves (my Spanish speaking daughter told me it means "soft flowers") over a month ago and I finally had time to play with it.  This morning bright and early, 5am, I was going through my huge amount of emails and one of the other demonstrators had tried a technique called "Tapestry Paper" I was so intrigued by it that I went over to Sage Kimbel's blog Stamping Madly and checked out her video and was inspired!

Flores suaves Mother's Day Card
I just love this technique!  The card just glows.  I originally bought this stamp set because my husband, Scott, the Bee Keeper(20 hives and counting) says that this bee is very close to the real thing.  And the butterfly with the set is beautiful also.
