Robin's Egg Blue

I spent a quiet time last night just making a few CAS cards with some stamps that had never seen ink - yesterday was Mum's anniversary (4 years - time may REALLY have passed but it doesn't seem like it to me) and after a visit to some friends I went and took some flowers and then once we came back home I just sat and fiddled about with basics - nothing too fussy as I wasn't in the mood.

I bought some SU stamps a little while back and this is from the Morning Meadow set.

The pigment ink I used was a real cheapie (99p I think!) and has the lovely name of 'Robin's Egg Blue'! Bought just 'cos I liked the colour!
Just basic white card and stamped the floral sprays then ran an inked sponge along the edge of the card. In the middle of each of the larger flowers I used some Perfect Pearls.
The flourish, sentiment and larger blossom are also from the same set.
Cut out the blossom and then used Perfect Pearls on the stamens and then glued a larger pearl in the middle.

I intended to make this a One Layer card but ended up with the large flower stuck on with 3d foam pads!
