Inspired To Count Your Kisses Mom

This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Glenda Mosher Art. OMGosh what a wonderful art gallery she has. I chose the Tiger Lily on the right side bar marked as sold for my inspiration to make this card. My Mom has passed away and I have alread made a card to give to my MIL but I do have 2 daughters and a daughter in law that I can give cards to so I made this for one of them. I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pretty Kiwi Breezes for my colors and Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE for my layout. Not only did I use 3 challenges from this week today but I also used 3 different stamp sets recently released from TREEHOUSE STAMP COMPANY. Count Your Blessings, Butterfly Kisses, and My Mom are the sets I used. They are all just wonderful sets and I love how I can use parts of each one to make 1 card. My image was stamped in black brilliance on wc paper then I water colored which I have not done in awhile. I used SU wc crayons for coloring. The butterflies are from a MS punch with 2 sizes. My matt for my focal image was cut and embossed using Nestibility rectangle scallop. I tried doing to same with the wc paper only to find that it did not emboss so well and my matt ended up toooo big so I trimmed both down. Hope you like it.
