So after reading my post, hop on to Crafty Catz challenge, take a look at the cards the very talented DT have made for your inspiration and join in the fun!

and this is my GDT card!!!

For my card I used a Paper Nest Dolls image called "Love Strung", which they very kindly donated for me to work with. I decided to make it a Mother's Day card, but it can easily be used for Valentines, Anniversary, Love... 

On this card I decided to shape the front cover, so it's got a beautiful frame cut at the bottom... I did it with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge die.

The papers I've used are from:  Pebbles Front Porch paper pad, First Edition Rose garden paper pad, Kaiser Kraft Christmas collection paper pad (freebie from a magazine) and the music sheet paper also freebie from a magazine.

All the edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper. I also used Papermania embossing powder in foam white, sprinkle around the edges and heated with a heat gun.

As extra layers I used: a paper doily and a piece of cheese cloth, the latest from The Ribbon Girl.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers.

I used: Poppy, Cool Grey 3 and 2, Tan, Almond, Satin, Vanilla, Blossom, Buttercup and Sandstone. 

I used some glitter glue on top of the hearts, I'm getting addicted to this stuff!!!!

The "Love you" sentiment is also part of a paper pad from Pebbles Front Porch.
The MUM letters are from Docrafts Papermania Madame Payraud's mini alphabet stickers.

I also used to embellish the card:
Flowers and pearl brads from Wild Orchid Crafs.
Marianne Cretables leaves die.
Lace, ribbon and buttons from local shops
Pearls from Hobbycraft.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers #240 -  Embossing (wet embossing sprinkle around the card)
