Love You Mum

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “DD_FlowersOfTheMonth_May5Flowers of the Month – January thru June”. For a list of flowers for each month please visit the Double D Challenge blog. The team created beautiful cards to inspire you – so a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I was inspired by the beautiful pink roses in the photo and decided to make a Mother’s Day card for Mum. For the background I used a beautiful designer paper from an Asuka paper pad – I just love this floral wreath! I added pink roses and a variety of die cut leaves on the on side of the wreath. A little birdie and another fancy die cut wreath were place inside the floral wreath as a focal point. I finished off with a die-cut sentiment and a little heart. I really like the shabby outcome of this card.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

  • Dies R Us Challenge #168 (ends 05/13) – Always Anything Goes with a brand they sell (Dies: Memory Box “Hutton Wreath” (Style 94008) — Sizzix Thinlits “Feathered Friends” (664433) — Sizzix Thinlits “Garden Greens” (661206) — Creative Expressions craft die “Berry Bough” (CED3104))
  • Crafts Galore Encore #87 (May) (ends 05/31) – Always Anything Goes
  • Love to Craft #58 (ends 05/31) – Always Anything Goes
  • 613 Avenue Create (May) #5 (ends 05/31) – Anything Goes + Optional Twist: Mood Board (I used the roses, pink and green colours
  • A Place To Start May 2021 Challenge #5 (ends 05/31) – Anything Goes
  • Shopping Our Stash #444 (ends 05/10) – I made this for you, Mom
  • Little Red Wagon Challenge #600 (05/12) – Hers!

    That little bird just adds so much to this card. I love the floral wreath and the sweet polka dot background too. And, as always, those beautiful roses….your signature. This is stunning.
