Mother`s Day

I`m back with a card I made for my Mum for Mother`s Day. She loves flowers and isn`t really into cute images so this was ideal for her and she loved it.
I`d like to enter this into the latest Cupcake Craft Challenge, this time around they want to see the sentiment as the main focus on your card.

I used Martha Stewart Punch around the page eyelet lace (my favourite) for the border and the circle doily. K&Co Water Colour Bouquet paper and a Clarity Stamp sentiment.

The flowers are mainly WOC with a few from hobby house and the little butterflies I`ve had almost since I started crafting! LOL, I had a huge pack of them and they`ve lasted years! The large flower was made from Tim Holtz - Tattered Florals die with a DoCrafts V&A brad for the middle. I`ve added a bit of Stickles - Diamond to the sentiment edge and a few of the flowers too. The stick pin is from Sir Stampalot (sorry can`t remember the brand)....
I also made a little box to match as an extra present, filled with her favourite Lindor chocolates.

The box is from a tutorial here and was great fun to make.

I must admit, the box of Lindor sat on my craft desk for a full 24 hours before I gave them to my Mum and I showed great restraint in not eating them as they are my faves too, but she did let me have one after she received them! (She is the best Mum)

Well, I`m going to have another crafting day today, we woke up to a white world this morning which was a surprise, I thought we were done with the snow for this year. So what better weather to stay indoors and craft! (any excuse LOL).
Thanks for looking in, bye for now, stay warm and happy crafting xxx
