Mother's Day Card..

Hello - today I am showing my card for my own Mum.  My mum is not a fan of my distressed and layered cards (I can tell) so this one has been made with clean straight lines including everything I know she likes.

It is again an 8x8 base and I have used some pretty patterned papers in colours I know she will like.  I have used Joanna Sheen "Sweetpea Fairy" set of stamps - as these are my mum's favourite flower.  She grows them really well.

I have used distress inks to watercolour both the fairy and the sweetpea flowers which I cut out (took me ages too) and then entwined in the Marianne Design Tunis Bird Cage die (which I also layered).  The flowers and sweetpea flowers have been decoupaged slightly!

The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions set of sentiments.

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

Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge - "Fairies"

Moving Along with the Times - "For a Special Lady"

I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday - whatever they are doing!
