Mother`s Day Card

This is the card that I made for my Mum for Mother`s day recently, I had to wrestle it off her to photograph it for my blog, she loved it so much she still has it up on display !
The image is from Penny Black, I love this one it`s one of my faves, Mum loves daffodils they are one of her fave flowers. I`ve coloured with distress inks as usual , the backing paper is one I got free from Making cards magazine ages ago.
The dies are Cheery Lynn - fanciful flourish and Magnolia doohicky doily both available at Sir Stampalot and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This is the inside, I`ve made it like a box card as there was so much dimension inside. I`ve hand made all these flowers apart from two of the tiny cream roses and the tiny yellow buds. All the others were made using a combination of punches and dies as follows :- Marianne Creatables, Tim Holtz-Tattered Florals, Nellie Snellen -medium leaves and small flower sets, Woodware-Mini daisy, Doocrafts-Mini flower and Mini daisy, Ash branch and fern foliage punches from Sir Stampalot, Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish die, Sizzix sizzlets-leaf dies, and the vase is a christmas bauble die from prickly pear.

This was a labour of love as it took me three days, almost one full day just to make the flowers ! But I think the end result was worth the effort.

I got the verse from one of the free poem websites and I think it sums up Mums perfectly, I love my Mum,she`s my best friend and I always know she`ll be there for me no matter what.

I`d like to enter this into the March Penny black and more at Allsorts challenge Which is "Springtime".

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xxx.
