Journal for Mum

I covered another Journal for my Mum as her Christmas present. This time I used the Spring Flowers DSP. I love this DSP but for some reason seem to forget that I have it and as such it rarely gets used, so when I was picking out a DSP to use for Mum I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to use it.
The Embrace Life flower was coloured using my blender pen & inkpads in Cameo Coral & Barely Banana (taken from the colours in the DSP). Then I traced the stamens(?) with the fine end of my close to cocoa marker.
As I know that journals get more wear and tear than the average card or scrapbook page I have lightly singed the ends of the ribbon with a lighter to stop them fraying (I actually keep one with my stamping things for this purpose).
