Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Everyone,

My DH invited my Mum and Dad over for a BBQ Breakfast for Mother's Day this morning which was really nice! I was also spoilt with a Cafe Espresso Machine, Coffee and Chocolates! (My two favourite things)

This is the card was made for my Mum for the Mother's Day using the Friday Sketchers Challenge Sketch supplied this week by the extemely talented Jacque and you can check out her fabulous card here.

My cardstock is Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette which seem to be getting quite a workout lately! Teamed with my currect favourite papers from Papermania. The panels have been sewn onto the card all layers have been distress with Tim Holtz Antique Linen. I have used my MS Floral Band Border Punch to mat the oval by punching a long strip and cutting it at intervals to apply it before placing it on foam dots. The pink oval is also lightly stamped with French Script in Antique Linen but is a little hard to see. The sentiment is typed on the computer and the tag made with SU Tag Punches. These gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid and ribbon and a "Made with Love" Charm that is a little hard to see complete the card.

I am also entering this card in the CCEE Challenge - Mother's Day, the Copic Colour Challenge BG11, BG02 and R20 (I used the colours I had closest to these), the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Recipe (3 Embellishments - Ribbon, Flowers & Charm, 2 Papers and 1 Image.) and The Pink Elephant Challenge - "Mommy - I love You".

My apologies for the lack of posts this week, it's been a busy one!
Thanks for looking, I hope you all enjoy your Mother's Day!
