For Mum

Hello Folks and a very happy Mothering Sunday to all those Mum and Grandmas out there

Here is the card I made for my mother in law from her little angel (well big one now!!)
Apologies for the photo quality. I took these photos very early the other morning so my hubby could post the card and the sun had not quite woken up so I was dependent on my kitchen lights. 
I began by covering a 6 inch square card black with papers from First Edition's Botanical notes paper pad and adding a cream lace corner (from the Ribbon Girl) and some paper swirls cut using a Die'namics die.
The image is from Penny Black's Stitches stamp set which I stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with the following Spectrum Noir pencils - 

  • hair - 097, 098 and 101
  • skin - 004, 005 and 009
  • wings - 003, 065 and 066
  • grass - 047 and 058

I made a frame from another of the papers using Spellbinder's floral ovals and an oval nestie, added some tumbled glass distress ink to the image and attached the frame. I attached the topper to the card base with foam pads.

I cut and layered several Spellbinder's blooms 1 and 4 and attached them to the card as shown.
To finish I added some pearls (from the Hobby House) and stamped a sentiment from LOTV's sentiments to fit scroll stamp set.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
