Moonlight becomes me...

I had the opportunity to get inky on Mother's day and thought I would start work on a commission that needed to be finished by the end of next week . It is a retirement card for a female lawyer who likes cruises and flowers. I am hoping this fits the bill.
I used my ink dusters to create a moon, sea and sky with Adirondack inks in Peach Bellini, Mountain Rose, Watermelon, Purple twilight, Eggplant, Denim and Pitch Black.The stamps are all stampscapes (Palms with Huts small set).
 The vine and large flower in the corner are Marianne design dies and the flowers are an EK success punch. I am entering this into the 'Craft a scene' challenge where the theme this month is Moonlight. It is the first time I have entered this challenge, but my regular visitors will know how much I love my scenes.

Before I go I thought I would share the card Meg made me for Mother's day, yesterday. She loves drawing Manga and here is her portrait of me...waist deep in cupcake! If only I were that slim in real life! She bought me flowers, baked me some gorgeous cakes and cleaned my car too. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter.
Well, I'd better go and get on. Thanks for looking!

What a stunning scene! It's clear your daughter shares your talent too. Now I wouldn't argue if someone were to put me waist deep into a cupcake...

I love your cruise card, Sally, how I would like to be sat on that tropical island. Your flowers are gorgeous.
Meg's card is brilliant. She's really caught your likeness. Wouldn't we all like to be waist deep in cake.
Glad you were spoilt on Mother's Day.
Hugs Lisax
