Curtain Call- Act 27 "Happy Mother's Day"

Hello and welcome back for yet another week! 
Act 27's colours are just the perfect inspiration for a Mother's Day creation- introducing the colours........... Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo. 
I have used Rose Red as Melon Mambo is a new colour here, even though I have some card stock but I don't have the ink pad, as you can see I used not cardstock but needed the ink- isn't that always the way!!  I have to admit that I love Rose Red, I feel it is a bit more Mumsy than the Melon Mambo- but I sure that I will fall in love with Melon Mambo too in the not too distant future, my new MM inkpad is only a week away, just ordered it today- yipee!!!
Yet another week when my card looks nothing like what was in my head before I started!!  When I was looking at all the delicious entries from last week, I was inspired to create a clean and simple look with lots of white- Hmmm........... this is not the result for me though :(.  I take my hat off to all those very talented ones who can pull it off - mwah!!
Aren't these flowers in the picture just beautiful, I just want to smell them up!!!

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky!  Remember Mother's day is only 2 weeks away, so come along and share you creation for a very special Mum!
