Alternew April 2017 Inspiration Challenge

I'll be on vacation next month, so I've started making cards I want to send out  in May.
First, a Mother's Day card:

My color inspiration is from Alternew April Inspiration Challenge.  Mom loves blue/green tones.

I heat-embossed the magnolia images in platinum, and fussy-cut them.
I also heat-embossed the sentiment.

Stamp: Magnolias For Her (Altenew), Thoughtful Banners (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Distress Watercolor Cardstock (Ranger), Whisper White, Bermuda Bay  (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Sapphire, Persian Blue, Warm Sunshine (Altenew), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Embossing Powder (Liquid Platinum - Ranger, White - Hero Arts), Foam Tape (3M), Watercolor brush (Grumbacher 3/4", 10)

Thanks for visiting me!
