Mum's the word...

...with mothers day approaching 
this post is to show a card I have made for my mother-in-law.

The border edges on this card is a punch by x-cut.
It is one of my new punches that I couldn't wait to play with.
The pale pink cardstock is by papermania,
the pearlised pink card is one from my stash.


This effect was created by using the off-cuts
 from creating the original border edges.
The card candi is by craftworks and it is a mix of
 'passionista' and 'love me do'.

This little cutie is Milly flower power by Lili of the Valley.
I used my beloved promarkers to colour her in.
The border edges are outlined with 'crystal' stickles.
And to add that extra pizazz
 I used a diamond dust on the flower.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:


Crafty Catz challenge 122  - punches/dies

The Crazy Challenge 108  - anything goes

Craft Challenge 144  - mothers Day
