Mothers Day Blues

I have been commissioned to make a few Mothers Day cards for people at work so I thought I would play around with some ideas.
This card is using the new range of Parisienne Blue from Do Crafts..... The whole range has a very french feel to it. I think this will be very popular. The stamped little bottle tops have been created using the Madam Payraud typewriter stamps and a medium circle punch.......
When you punch out the circles and then just emboss the edge it looks like a little bottle top - very cute!
I can see me using this technique for lots of things like names etc for mens cards.
 The purple background has been created with the new Do Crafts spritzing ink.

Have a great crafty weekend
Thanks for taking at peek at my latest project.
