A comissioned card for Mother's Day

Hello friends.

I hope you are all well and had a lovely sunny weekend. Did you mums get spoiled and pampered? I went out for couple of drinks with Russ, my daughter and son in law before we came home for a Chinese take away.  It was a lovely evening. 

I am showing you a card today which was a commission for a work colleague. The photograph is of her fiancĂ© and his two brothers for his mum. I wanted it to have a vintage feel - I think I have succeeded. 


The flowers are from WOC and Live and Love Crafts. The white butterfly is made from Martha Stewart air drying clay and the frame to the right of the flowers is made using a Mod Podge mould. I have added the Doo Hickey heart die to the corner of the card which pulls out. 


The doily die is from Tattered Lace (I will add it too the product list at the bottom of the post when I remember the name of it).


I have added Frantage to the butterfly die. The pink rolled flower is from Kort & Godt.


 The lace and pearls are from my crafty stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Card Mania - Lace and Pearls
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Add Flowers
Dream Valley - Mothering Sunday
