Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's day to all you Mum's out there...hope you're being spoilt rotten! Today I'm going to show you the card that I made for my Mum. I used 'Gifts for You!' by Penny Black (coloured with watercolour pencils), and papers from the 'Wild Asparagus' collection by My Mind's Eye. I distressed the edges, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The flowers are by Prima, the brads are BasicGrey 'Wisteria', and the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.
