Simon Says Challenge - Mother's Day/Girly

Good morning ! It's Wednesday again already and its time for Simon Says Challenge !

This week's challenge is a creation for Mother's Day or simply just girly !

The Design Team are showcasing Hero Arts products this week. Simon Says Stamp sells a HUGE range of Hero Arts products and their stock of Hero Arts stamps is amazing. They have all the latest releases in store. The only problem I found was choosing exactly which stamp to buy as there are so many gorgeous ones to choose from !!!
If you have any Hero Arts products you would like to use for this challenge, we would love to see them but if not, no worries, just join in the fun and make a girly card using any products you like !

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 P&P free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store for the lucky winner.

We also have a very special Designer in the Spotlight !! Jill Foster Jill is a Hero Arts Hostess !! If you haven't visited her blog you are in for a lovely treat. It's full of fabulous ideas on how to use your Hero Arts Stamps !

The rest of the DT's cards are gorgeous and a real inspiration. Hop over and have a look !

Now I will be honest and say I did find using my gorgeous Hero Arts stamps a challenge ! I think its because I just not used to not having a coloured image as a focal point and something to work around. I took lots of inspiration from the Hero Arts blog and used various ideas on my card from other cards shown on there. So thank you Hero Arts and your designers and other lovers of Hero Arts for giving me inspiration to use my gorgeous stamps !!!

The DP's I have used are Basic Grey Origins.

The large flowery flourish is from the "Stencil Art" set of Hero Arts clear stamps. I have stamped it in white ink and added some pearls and gems. The tiny flower gems are by Hero Arts.

The large flowers have been stamped onto Basic Grey Origins papers. These flowers are from the Clear Design Printed Flowers Hero Arts stamp set. I have added buttons from my stash to the centres.

The smaller flowers are Hero Arts Neutral flowers and I have added the small flower Hero Arts gems to the centres.

The friends sentiment is from the set "Share Laughter".

The finishing touches were a piece of corrugated card brushed with white acrylic paint and my trusty string !!

I don't think I could have got anymore Hero Arty if I tried with this card !!

I'm really looking forward to seeing your girly creations and hope you can play along with us.

Don't forget we also have a challenge running in our Papercraft Planet group. You can find details of it HERE !!
