For Mum

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I have had a few days holiday and got the spring cleaning all done . Though it does not feel like spring with the snow outside lol !! Just love taking time to enter some challenges and make a card for fun ;0)

I have made my Mum her Mother's Day card . I have cut a shape myself using papermill linen card and fiskers paper trimmer. I have frantaged the doily at the top with stampendous pink embossing enamel. The ruffle ribbon and pearl trim are from Live & Love Crafts with the design papers.

I have used Pion design papers for the backing layers and for the die cuts.
I have machine stitched the layers and used the Magnolia sentiment stamp onto the design paper and then used Ranger embossing powder.

I have coloured Joyful Tilda with a combination of distress ink markers and pads on langton cold press aquarelle paper with Ranger Archival ink.

I have cut the Doohickey Tag and put a die-namics perfect Polaroids die on top with detail from the design paper finished with a cut out butterfly from them and spots of liquid pearls.

This die is from The Magnolia Christmas Doohickey Club. I have added some crochet thread and a Live & Love Crafts button.

I have cut the doohickey peony petals and used the heart from the apron for the center and added another butterfly.

I have cut a straw from Live & Love Crafts and put La La Land banner dies underneath with some letters cut from graphic 45 papers and finished above with a Melissa Francis pearl.

I hope you like my card . I would like to enter the following challenges as they inspired me to make my Mum's card.

Thank you for visiting
