Mother's Day Card

Sorry about the photo but it is raining again this morning so thought I would try a photo under the desk lamp. Thought it had a daylight bulb in there..... I have made this card for Mother's Day using a cream perlescant card for the base card. Then a layer of brown bazzill card. This wonderful orange paper I received in a swap ages ago, it is so rich and elegant. These wonderful poppies are a 3D paper tole from Blue Edge Crafts. My lovely mother cut these flowers out as she has a much steadier hand than me. :-) Finished the card with brown ribbon and a Mum sticker.

Time for me to make another card now. I am stuck at home for the morning as the car is in getting work done and it's raining outside. So what else can a person do but craft in these conditions. Happy Wednesday everyone.

  4. Hi Merry

    Getting decent photos is the baine of my life and why is it that it seems impossible to get a picture of a square card that atually looks square ?

    Anyhow, the colours of this look very rich and great card.
