Over at MSE the lovely Jailhousebabe set a challenge for a Mother's Day Card. Unfortunately both of the elderly mothers who receive mine don't appreciate hand made cards and I know they end up in the bin along with whatever else they've received for whatever occasion. This makes it difficult for me to want to make too much of an effort and use too much of my lovely stash which could go to a more appreciative recipient! Also, M-I-L is so very traditional and just doesn't "get" anything remotely modern, so with all this in mind this is my entry and it will go to my mother who is a bit more with it!
5" square card covered with some blue and white decorative paper. Core'dinations whitewash card run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and some dark blue ribbon wrapped round, embellished with a couple of buttons and some fibre I had in my stash. The flower is from an old stamp but I've only used part of the image, stamped with Stazon and watercoloured and matted onto some co-ordinating Gemstones cardstock. The sentiment was printed on the computer, cut with Nesties and layered onto the same Gemstones card.
