Another Mothers Day card

I got the inspiration for this card on Pinterest. I spend so much time on there and I can't decide if its a big waste of time or if I learn and see enough inspiration on there to validate spending as much time on there as I do. There is a ton of inspiration and so much information on so many different things!
 I admit it, I'm addicted, but I have gone for days without looking too.
Anyway, back to this card-it was posted on which is a Stampin Up demonstrators community. And since I'm not a Stampin Up Demonstrator I can't log in and give credit where credit is due. So I copied it the best I could using Close To My Heart products.

I created the roses by first embossing  on white cardstock the rose from Card Word Puzzle. I used Silver Pearl Z678 embossing powder (no longer available through Close To My Heart, but it's a Ranger product) I love the look. It's white with a pearlized sheen.
 I didn't have a Honey ink pad, but I do have the reinker- not sure what the deal is there. So I dropped a drop of ink on a tissue, dabbed it off on a scrap and then circular rubbed it in on the embossed rose. I wanted the center of the flower darker and some of the edges. I did the inking before I cut the flowers out. There's only one stamp size of the rose so I created two and then cut one down when I had it colored the way I wanted it. I used the same tissue technique and used a little Autumn TerraCotta ink in the centers of the roses.
Seam Binding Z1732     and a bling brad  z1360  pretty much finish it.
It was a little difficult for me not to do some ink distressing on the edges of the papers! I caught myself a couple of times getting ready to start inking, but the inspiration card didn't use any and I really liked everything about the card and so I reframed. It really gives a clean look without the distressing. So here it is....
Another card for the Heart 2 Heart challenge for this week
