Another Mothers Day Card

Its that lovely Teddy For Mum stamp from Lili of The Valley, again! (Go check out the new stamps they are soooo cute!) No New makes from me, this week, I have done a little crafting, but I can't share what I have been doing just yet - So I thought I would show you The Mothers Day card I made for my Mum.

The round Mothers Day sentiment came free with a magazine, so I based my card on that! The bear is coloured using copics but I used Spectrum Noirs to colour the Mum Balloon & flowers. I was keen to try the Spectrum Noirs as I have read so many great reports and seen them on Create & Craft TV, so ordered a set of RED'S, I find reds one of the hardest colour combos to blend so I thought if I can do reds using the spectrum Noirs then I will be able to use the rest of them, well as you can see I did manage to blend them and for the price they are very good, however I found the shape of the pens difficult to hold, and I did not like the nib at all, - Just my humble opinion, but I will be sticking to Copics and Pro-markers.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
