Mum in a Million

Hi I am with a  Mothers day card destined for my mum of course. She doesn't view my blog so no chance of spoiling it for her!

This is a 7 inch square. I cut a heart aperture (Spellbinders) in a white piece of card that was then cut with a triple embossed square (Phil Martin) and layered over another piece of card that I stamped with the script stamp. The whole panel is mounted on 3D foam on my base card.

The peony stamp is from a Crafters Companion set and I stamped on to watercolour card and coloured with my watercolour pens, and then fussy cut the image and mounted it on 3D pads.

The butterfly again is Crafters Companion but cut in vellum and colored with the same colours as the flower. It was then liberally sprinkled with glamour dust to make it sparkle and some pearls for its body.

The sentiments are computer generated and after great deliberation were finally placed flat on the card but edged with a black pen for a bit of contrast.

and the inside.....

The bud stamp is from the same stamp set as the main flower, coloured very pale with the same two colours  and the verse is computer generated.

Well the sun is shining here at present but boy is it windy...battering the daffodils and tulips that are fighting to declare Spring. Hubby is desperate to get in the garden but it is still so wet from all the rain of late.

Thank you to those of you who left me comments on my last very much appreciated as our time is precious, and Thank you if you are reading this, the same applies, I appreciate the time you give to my humble ramblings.

Stay safe and well everyone and have a good's almost  here.
