Anyways, let's get back to today's post. It's the start of a brand new challenge at Polkadoodles for this fortnight. Mother's day in the UK is at the end of March, so our challenge theme is Mum's the Word. Now, you of course could make a birthday card for your Mum, it doesn't have to be Mother's Day.
My card to share with you is one for my girls to send to their Grandma in the UK. I decided to make a shaped easel card. Using my Siilhouette Cameo to make the card base and then cutting out all the elements.
I used a pre-coloured image from the Bonbon Belles Double CD. This CD is amazing. Full of fabulous digis, embellishments, papers, you name it it's got it! The little ticket with grandma on it, is also from this CD.
I did an extra layer of the frame and put this up on pop dots. Then the image is also up on pop dots, however, I also cut out some extra teeny flowers to add a little depth to the image and then added some lovely teeny bling to the centres. Here's a close up.
The floral paper in the background is from another great collection, called Sugar Birdies.
The Mother's Day stamps is from a See D's stamp set called Springtime Swirls. I added some little flowers and bling to edge the sentiment.
I really will have to get my colouring mojo back, Nikky has a great new collection out and I can't wait to have a play with them. This is the first and there will be more to come! If you would like to win this collection, then go along and enter this fortnights challenge - Mum's the Word!
For this card I used the following collections. Clicking on the images will take you to the Polkadoodles shop.
