Mother's Day

Hello!! Well not only was it Mother's Day on Sunday, I was at a joint birthday lunch for my friend Helens niece Shannon who was 18 and her Auntie Margaret who is 70! We all had a lovely time.

So, now to my card, I kinda stole this idea from Leah she said it was alright to do so!!
I bought my first pack of 8x8 cards at the SECC a few weeks ago.
This is what I did.
I used my PENNYBLACK stamp, coloured it with PROMARKERS and decoupaged it up using PINFLAIR to lift it off the page a bit. The papers are Tea Party from DOVECRAFT and the flowers from WILD ORCHID CRAFTS.
I inked around all the edges with my weathered wood DISTRESS INK
To finish off I added a wee butterfly made with my MARTHA STEWART punch and pearl gems.

Hope you like it, thank you for dropping by x x
