Just for Mom!


What do you do when your mom is a card maker too, you make her an extra special Mother's Day card!

 I can share this with you this morning as I have already given this card to my mom last evening. I have coloured the beautiful Tilda going Bananas in shades of purple to match with the gorgeous papers found in the MME So Sophie collection.

I have pulled out some of my favorite punches to add so extra detail to this card. The results are worth it in the end but it took four tries to get that border right. I was lucky to find these Prima flowers among my stash as they match the papers perfectly and they really added to the dimension of the card.

Love ya Mom! Happy Mother's Day!
