An easel Mother's Day card

This card is for my Mum I hope she likes it. I have used one of my Penny Black stamps - I do love those hedgies. The challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week is to make an easel card. Now I couldn't find the instructions I had written down but no problem I managed it anyway so it must be easy!!!


The image was coloured using my watercolour crayons, then mounted it onto a pale green glitter scalloped circle. The papers are from Smirk - "Naughty but Nice" and "Love and Friendship". They have all been distressed around the edge.

The daffodils holding the card up are actually buttons and the word is made from a Spellbinders alphabet set called Childhood. Whoops I nearly forgot - the sketch I used was the one at Sketch Saturday and is shown below:-

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Quirky Crafts - Buttons,

Rosie D's Challenge - Spring,

Cute Daisy May - Mother's Day,

Crafty Angels - Butterflies,

Sophisticat Challenge - Flourishes and Bling,

Stamp With Fun - Spring,
