Mum's the word !

This week over at My mums craft shop challenges our challenge for you is to show us your cards and projects to celebrate your mum or a special lady in your life :)

We are sponsored by the fabulous Day for daisies and I have used their gorgeous "A special flower" digital image on my card isn't she pretty ?!

I coloured her with my Pro-markers and highlighted her with my spica glitter pens then mounted her on a gorgeous spellbinders fleur de lis die cut which I cut out of engraving art board - do you remember those scratch art pictures you used to have as a kid ? Well you can buy the plain sheets which run perfectly through the big shot and create great embellishments and die cuts just rough it up after you run it through to reveal the metal underneath.

I used papers from the Authentique Uncommon paper pad and just a few pearls, a little tag and a ribbon so that the gorgeous image and frame remained the star of the show !

I hope you'll join in and play along with us this week at MMCS x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Paper sundaes - Feminine flair (SU)
Crafts 4 eternity - Special Mum (F)
