Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Mother's Day

This week has just flown by...I can't believe half-term is almost over! Anyway, it's Saturday that means it's time for another Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and this week's theme, as chosen by Debby is:

'Mother's Day'

I know it seems a bit early to be thinking about making Mother's Day cards....but it's only a few weeks away here in the UK (March 14th). In fact it was perfect timing for me...I was able to make my card whilst visiting my parents earlier this week...and leave it with my Dad to give to my Mum...lets just hope he remembers! lol
I've used an image from 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black...colouring it to match the papers from the 'Sugared' pad by BasicGrey. I embossed the yellow panel using my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder and then sanded to reveal the white core of the paper. I distressed the edges of the papers, and added some faux stitching using a Cutterbee Bug and a white gel pen. The letters were cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.

Make sure you stop by the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge for more inspiration from the rest of the design team.
