Mum's Day Cards

I started with a white BE card then layered with some lovely textured DCWV card that I have run through my cuttlebug with the Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder.  I printed off the 'mother' definition.  I coloured this wonderful butterfly sticker from Sticker Store with my watercolour pencils.  I find this type of colouring very relaxing.

On this card again I have used one of the beautiful butterfly sticker panels from Sticker Store.  Coloured with my watercolour pencils.  I have started with a white BE card then layered with SU More Mustard then a layer DCWV paper prints.  Next I ran a strip of SU More Mustard through the cuttlebug firstly with my Stylised Flowers embossing folder and then with the Swiss Dots folder.  I printed the sentiment off the computer.

These two cards are being sent to Tracey so that she can forward them onto our Aussie Troops serving overseas.  If you would like to join in just click here.  Tracey has asked for cards to be sent to her by 16th March 2011.
