Look away now Mum....

Here's a card that may - or may not- end up as my Mother's Day card :). This week's Simon Says Challenge is to make a Mother's Day or Girly card, Totally Papercraft's challenge is to make something for Mother's Day or a special lady and Stamp Something's theme is Something Girly, this is girly for sure, with beautiful soft colours, pearls and flowers, will it be Mum's card this year? Wait and see :).

I've followed the Sketch Saturday sketch by Maya. At first I couldn't think how to make this sketch work but once I decided on an image it all came together. This week's Cupcake Crafts theme is Flower Power, I've used beautiful Basic Grey Wisteria DP which is bursting with blooms, as well as the flowers in the image. Crafty Cardmakers are calling for a Feminine Celebration, finally Basic Grey has a photo for their theme, which is the basis of my colour choices.

Image is Stampin' Up, another image from my inky day with a crafting friend a few weeks back, stamped and coloured twice using Copics, popped up on silicon glue. All papers are Basic Grey Wisteria, ribbon is from stash, coloured with Copics. Pearls are from Kaisercraft, leaves and girl's hat have Glossy Accents on them. No sentiment - yet...
