First I'd like to let you all know that my Followers Google Friends Connect is not working... it seems a lot of bloggers are in the same situation as me... It doesn't let me follow anybody... when I try, it tells me I'm already following them! (I know I'm not!) and then, when I try to sign in, an error message comes up...
If you decide to become my follower, try with Google Friends Connect, it might work for you! but if you can't, I've added the "Follow by email" and of course, Bloglovin'. So no excuses!!! :)
Today I've got a Mother's Day card for you, which my friend asked me to make for her to give to her mum. It is a bit of a different card for me.. as it hasn't got a coloured image... but I thought this type of card was the most appropriate for this occasion. I tried to go for a Shabby Chic look, hopefully I achieved it!
As usual, I played around with layers... I used two different colours of card-stock as a base, then I put the paper with writing ... it is such a great paper! it has lots of lovely quotes all written on it..., it is from Pebbles Front Porch Paper pad. On top I put another layer with card-stock and a beautiful paper from Raspberry Road Designs by Susan Darter.
All these card-stock and papers have been heavily distressed with the Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender and Old Paper.
I also hand-stitched all around the papers with white thread.
As extra layers I used a Marianne Creatables Die cut, which I distressed with the same Tim Holtz inks and an stamped image "Postcard" by Papermania Urban stamps (also heavily distressed) and a piece for lace mesh.
The flowers, leaves and the filigree silver corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The pearls are from Hobbycraft.
The little "Best Mum" tag stamp is from a clear stamp freebie in a magazine a while ago.
I created the sentiment on the computer.
The scallop roses sticker is so beautiful! I've had it in my stash for years... it has a lot of texture...
The butterfly is a sticker, also in my stash for ages... not sure why I haven't used them for such a long time, but I though it would go great on this card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Created with Love #78 - Girly challenge 2rd entry
Love to Create #108 - Bingo (Pink, pearls, sparkle -butterfly is sparkly-)
The Crazy challenge #167 - Flower Frenzy 3rd entry

I really hope you like the card. If you do, don't forget to leave me some love in the messages...
Until next time!!!
