Mother's Day Card

Hi folks,

I know Mother's Day was yesterday, but I didn't have a chance to share with you until now, so today, I have the card I made for my mum for Mother's Day.

I used lilac and cream, and this adorable image from Pollycraft, the Cherry Kisses range, Tea in the 20s. I actually paper-pieced her dress and hat in cream BP and coloured the accents and the rest of the image using promarkers.

I made the rosette from matching BP and the sentiment in the centre is a freebie from Sentiments 4 You which I printed straight onto the BP.

I used a lilac gingham BP mounted onto lilac cardstock, cut the corners with a decorative corner, and decorated with flower gems. The cream pearlescent panel is also mounted onto the lilac cardstock, and has an organza ribbon tied around it. The rosette is attached and I added 2 decorative pearl pins. A lilac gem-heart, a few more lilac gems and a die cut ' Mum' (quickutz Phoebe) and that's it! I'm pleased to say that mum loved it!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by.
