A quick card for MMM

Hello I've just popped back briefly because it's my turn to be host at Make My Monday. My chosen theme is:
"For Mums"

 I really struggled to make this card because all my stash is packed ready for my house move ... which was Friday 21st! This is a scheduled post so with any luck I'll be in my new house when you read this :~) but  my internet connection might not be live so unfortunately  I wont be able to visit your blogs etc.
 I used one of the only stamps that was still lying around and suitable for this challenge. It's by La Blanche  stamped with Kaleidacolor: Spectrum which was also an oddment not packed away.  The little sentiment is from a free set from Creative Stamping magazine called Timeless Opulence.
 I finished with a little bit of doodling!

 I stamped the image a second time, cut out and layered up
 I used a dry paintbrush stroked across the appropriate colours in the ink pad, lightly applied to the flower image to add more depth to the colours. I then added a little smattering of Stickles for some reason this was also still lying around alone and forlorn! :~)

 The lilac card which the main image is layered onto is in fact a DL card flattened out and cut to size...( look closely you can see the crease)   which was no mean feat because all cutters are packed... I'm not know for straight!! ... all card stock is also packed.
 This will be my last post for a few weeks.... you know why lol...... my new house needs  a big refurb.... I've no idea when my craft room will be up and running.
 I wish you all well.... see you as soon as I can
