Mother's Day

Mother's Day is not too far away and there are a few challenges out there with this theme. I have entered my card in:

1. Scrapbook Boutique's monthly challenge - April 2013
 Had to use the theme "Love you Mum" and this photo as inspiration:

2. RRR Challenge #70 'Mother's Day & Ribbon' theme - must use Mother's Day theme and have ribbon / lace somewhere on your project - I used lace
3. Love to Create Challenge Blog - Challenge #62 Bingo Card
This is the bingo card:

I used Lace, Die Cuts / Punches and Gems/Bling (pearls)

This is my card:
Elizabeth Whisson, handmade card, Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, mother's day, Spiral Blossom One, Whimsy Stamps, Peggy, Wee Stamps, copic, copic markers, copic sketch, copic colouring, copic coloring

First time making paper flowers. Dabbed them with Tattered rose distress ink and then brushed some vanilla shimmer spray over the top.

Picture of sentiment with embossed paper in background (kind of accidentally embossed the paper "backwards" - but decided it looks quite nice this way anyway):
