Mother's Day Card

Evening folks,

This evening I am going to share the card I have made for my Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day. I have used the fab Spots and Stripes Pastel papers from DoCrafts. I have to say that these papers wouldn't have been my first choice but I had some vouchers to spend so I did buy them. I am now really glad I did as I have used them for quite a few cards. They are perfect for Easter and Mother's Day cards as they make me think of Spring!

I think the stamp is by Penny Black, but not I'm certain as it is one of my Mum's. We have a great arrangement whereby whenever one of us buys a stamp the other gets a load of the stamped image!! I then coloured it in using copics.

I also cut a circle from the filigree paper from the Vintage Notes range from Docrafts and added a flower and bow that I was lucky enough to win in a card challenge with Crafty Bloggers Network. I seem to have been lucky recently as I won a massive bag of flowers for that, then I won some blog candy and I also won a few bits from the Coffee Break Teaser in the DoCrafts Creativity Magazine. They say things happen in threes so I guess that's it now, or maybe I should buy a lottery ticket!

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

My Mum's Craft Shop - Spring has Sprung
Crafty Bloggers Network - Spring or Pastel
Whoopsi Daisy - 2 patterned papers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (Mother's Day Card)

Thanks for looking and hope you are all having a crafty evening!
