Silhouette UK Challenge - Free Design of The Week

For a couple of weeks now I have noticed that Silhouette UK are holding a Free Design of The Week Challenge on their blog, so this week I thought I would submit a card.

Silhouette UK Free Design Weekly Challenge
The free design this week in the Silhouette Store is this:-
.....and this is what I came up with....
Watercoloured mother's day card
I started off by cutting out the flower shape, which, although is quite intricate, cut out really well.  I then made a solid flower shape which I welded to a frame to fit a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 
I watercoloured this solid flower and then when it was dry, went over it with a Wink of Stella pen to give it a glittery look.

I then adhered the cut out flower on top and then used double sided foam tape to layer it to the card base.
I heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder and added a few sequins to finish it off.

I shall be giving this to my mum on Mother's Day...she makes cards herself so I hope she likes it.
I have listed the products I used to make today's card below.
