My Second Mother's Day Card

Hello Everyone - I hope you've had a wonderful weekend! We had such a beautiful day here today, lovely and sunny, but a little chilly! And I had a lovely day yesterday when I discovered that I was lucky enough to be the winner of last week's Sketch Saturday challenge - lucky green for me definitely - see the card in my previous post!

I am happier with this second Mother's Day card. I am entering it in this week's Sugar Bowl Challenge - which is a sketch with the added 'please include' theme of 'Shabby Chic'. I'm not very good at distressing, so I used some Kay and Co papers which looked shabby chic to me. The round mat was sprayed with Memories Mist, then embossed with my new Cuttlebug, and then sanded to show the embossed design. I also made a paper flower - I'm so pleased with it - I followed the tutorial here and I did use tissue paper out of a shoe box! - instead of using an ink pad, I lightly highlighted the creases of the paper with a promarker. The image is Demure from Sugar Nellie, and I coloured her with promarkers.

I hope you like my card - my next project is a card for a Golden Wedding - hope to show that to you soon.

Love, Andrea xx
