Avery Elle - AEI♥U Challenge #6 Mother’s Day!

I've not entered an Avery Elle challenge previously, and this was a lot of fun. I recently purchased the AE pigment inks (LOVE!) and used them almost exclusively on this card. The floral bouquet is stamped using a "ghost" technique, laying down a layer of Pure White, and over-stamped with Raspberry and Celery inks. I really like this effect. I didn't have a Mom stamp, so used a Silhouette cut file which I layered for a 3D effect. (If you are looking for my PTI MIM challenge card, it is here)

Supplies used:
Stamps: Avery Elle Thanks A Bunch, Handwritten Notes
Ink: Avery Elle pigment, Colorbox pigment (brown embossed "really")
Cardstock: all Papertrey Ink
White dots on Mom - Signo Uniball White
Diamond Stickles

I like how the card is on a slant. And the addition to the sentiment. :) Thanks for playing along with Avery Elle!
