A Special Lady

Hi Crafters,

With Mother's Day at the weekend I have had quite a few orders and some were rather specific in their requirements. The card I'm sharing today was one such order.

~'It must be pink, with a large flower as the focal piece and have the word MUM on it'~

Hopefully this fits the remit...

Papers and Image from A Country Life CD Rom
Magnolia Scalloped Half Circle Die x2 for the background frame
Joy Crafts Labels and Tags Die 6002/0142
Pleated Organza Ribbon
Velvet Ribbon
Sentiment - Papermania Stamp
La La Land Corner Die

I also ran my WoS clear glitter pen over the flower petals but of course that doesn't show up here.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
In The Pink - #89 For A Special Lady
Cute Card Thursday - #415 Mother's Day
Crafty Catz - #313 Special Lady
Crafty Friends - #26 Floral - Feature a Flower
Come And Get It - #107 Monochrome
Incy Wincy Designs - Personalise It
Crafty Cardmakers - #158 For A Special Woman

I'll pop back again tomorrow with my 'Oldie' project for Erika's blog, so see you then.
