Back again with a Mother's Day Card.

This will be entered into the Challenges at; Altenew, Inspiration Photo of Santorini Greece, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Inky Background.

Altenew _March 2018_Inspirationphoto

I must say I fell in LOVE with this photo as we were so lucky enough to travel to Santorini.  It is one magical place, so beautiful, filled with amazing views--just like this and wonderful people.  I would go back in a heart beat!  At the end of this post I will share some of my own photos!  <3 

I used the Altenew stamp and dies from the Wild Hibiscus sets.  I stamped my sentiment and images in Raven Black ink and colored the flowers with Copic Markers.  Ebony Nuvo Drops in flower centers.  After they dried I die cut 3 masks for my flowers and then spritzed the panel all over with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.

I layered the front panel on turquoise and peachy pink and white then on a turquoise base.
Corner Punch
Enamel Dots

Here are a few of my pictures of Santorini.....Magical I tell you!

Of course Hubby found the only Irish Bar on the island lol
