My Mum's Mother's Day Card :o) x

Here is the card I have made for my Mum for Mother's Day.

I used Promarkers to colour the super cute LOTV image and also added diamond stickles to her wings and dress. The papers are from First Edition's Sweet Owl paper pad, there are some lovely glittery papers in that pad! I distressed the edges of the patterned papers and curled some corners.

I covered some die cut letters with Glamour Dust for the "Mum" on the front panel, and embossed the Happy Mother's Day sentiment using silver embossing powder. The butterflies and flourishes were cut using Marianne Creatables dies and were coloured using promarkers then covered in diamond stickles and Glamour Dust. This card is super sparkly but you can never get the full effect in photos! Lot's of pearls and other bling added to finish off.

Another Pink and Brown card..... my fave combination :o)
