Mother's Day Card No's 3 & 4

Happy Mother's Day to all Mum's out there!

To finish off the Mother's Day theme for this year here are the two cards I have made for my Mum.

This one is my first attempt at an easel card, decades behind everyone else I know, but finally got round to giving one a go. The background paper is from Dovecraft's Back to Basics selection, the glittery daisy design card stock is from the DCWV Citrus Stack. I have used Mulberry paper flowers to frame the "Tilda with Big Ribbon" image and used Promarkers to colour her in. Both the Happy Mother's Day and With Love sentiment stamps are from Stamping All Day, and were stamped using Versamark and detail silver embossing powder. Almost everything has been given an extra bit of glitz using Diamond Stickles, and the little silver butterflies are from my jewelry findings stash. I have used the Marrianne Designs Creatables Swirl Circle Die for the flourish on the card front and used flat back pearls to create flourishes on the base to give it that extra special finish.

I am so pleased with how this card turned out, i know my Mum will love it! I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

The Cute & Girly for their "Cute & Girly" challenge
Allsorts Challenge for their "Blooming Blossoms" theme
Magnolia Downunder Challenges for their "Heavy Metal" challenge
The Crafty Pad for their "Flowers" challenge

This one is a colour variation to the one in my previous post..... just using some different colour options from the DCWV Citrus Stack.

Two super cards April, nice design on the second but I think the bright fresh Spring colours on the first have the edge for me.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation and joining in my Bloomin’ Blossoms theme at Allsorts this week.
