Love you, Mom

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Load on the Flowers
And here is my card for your inspiration:
If you are looking for super adorable images, make sure you check out Di's Digi Stamps!  I just LOVE here adorable, sweet little critters!  This is one of my favorites and I colored it up for my mom for Mother's Day.  I usually color my kitties gray because I've always loved gray cats, but now we have a sweet, little black kitten.  So, I colored up this little kitty to look like our Bagheera (the panther from Jungle Book).  I so happen to have both yellow and deep purple tulips blooming in my garden right now, so that was the basis for the color scheme.  My sister suggested the blue for the watering can, and I really do like the overall color combination with that addition.  I don't have many (if any, really) purple patterned papers, so I made my own using the "Guide Lines 2" stamp set from PTI.  I've had this set forever and it is still a favorite to pull out and play with.  I kept the focus on the yellow and purple, but did add in touches of blue to tie in with the watering can.  Once I finished stamping the pattern, it seemed a bit too bold and bright, so I softened it by covering the whole panel with a piece of vellum.  I also added softness with a bit of mulberry paper (yes, I still have tons and tons!) behind the image panel and the sheer ribbon (only a tiny piece left of it now).

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.
