Mother's Day Gem

Good evening fellow crafters, hope everyone is OK. Well I have been trying to do this card since this challenge started!!! back on 8th February - talk about leaving it to the last minute - oh yes I mean A Gem of a Challenge - this was their first challenge and I love Janet's images so I wanted to join in. You need to use a Pink Gem image - mine is called Sprinkles and Ladybird and use the sketch below.

I had to flip it to get the image on the way I wanted to. I coloured with watercolour crayons and glttered her wins with glitter glue.

The flowers are a mixture of Petaloo and Papermania and another one - I can't remember the name - oh yes I got it Flora Doodles. The smaller ones have a tiny silver brad through them. I have used some gems and ribbon from my stash. The papers are from Funky Fairys distressed and inked and in the background I have used silver miricard. The image is mounted onto one of my Spellbinders labels 4 (S4-190) , I cut the shape from Whitewash Core'dinations card and sanded the edges and inked them. The letters are using the Childhood alphabet set from Spellbinders - I bought it here and even after postage it was cheaper than anything I had seen in the UK.

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

Stamp Something - Girly,

Alphabet Challenge Blog - S is for Stamping,

Polka Doodles - Something stamped and wings,

Pollycraft Monday - Distressing,

Lily Boo Too Challenge - Mothers Day,

My Time To Craft - Mum,

I hope you have enjoyed your visit, please let me know and see you again soon.
