More cards for Mother's Day

Hi there. Apologies for my absence the last couple of days. I was caught up with family matters. All is well!
Today I managed to make four more cards for the Mother's Day stall and packaged them up to send off. Now all I have to do is make my own Mother's Day cards. At least I have had plenty of practice lately!

I based these cards on some of Nicola's My Paper World sketch challenges - notably sketch challenges Nos 4 and 7. Stamps used are from Stampin' Up!'s 'Merci' and 'Friendship Blooms'. The decorative papers are from Urban Lily and Stella Ruby. Ribbon, brads and inks/pastels are from Stampin' Up! and the flowers were bought from an online store called A Passion for Craft. I added a few extra accents with some Creative Memories metallic pens.
