Jumbo Zinnia? Yes please.

Hey there and welcome!
Happy Mother's Day to all who are celebrating,
whether you have human babies or fur babies!
This crazy time has really been messing with my
creative mojo, but I did find the spark again, a bit, to
make this card yesterday:

here's the inside:

With my crack photography skillz, both the stamped background and flower do not
match the same shade of dark purple that the sentiment banner is in this
picture, but I assure you they match rather well in real life.
The flower was stamped twice, colored (well just a coating of the light purple
where it would be covered up with the next layer), fussy cut and layered together.
I've added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the centers of the stamens. Both layers
are popped up with foam squares onto the card base, then a simple sentiment
and some sequins finish the front.

That's all for now. Got to get going and get some dinner on. Sadly,
Mother's Day isn't a 'thing' in my household. Sigh. I DO have
a fur baby. That should count, I believe. Oh well. LOL!
Have a great day, whatever you do!
