Shabby chic Mother's Day

This is the card I made for my Mum for Mothers' Day. It was inspired by a card I saw on Monica Gale's blog that she made for one of her Passionettes. The background of the card was stamped in Versmark with En Francais (it's really hard to see in the picture), then I used my new vintage jumbo roller in Gable Green over the corners. I couldn't resist playing with my Vintage Vogue set to make the flowers. The other thing I was playing about with was my Pretties kit. This is a beautiful kit, so beautiful in fact that I've had it over a year and never used it! I just couldn't bear to stick them down, instead I just stroke the flowers and beads and then put them away again.
Anyway, now I am back to a more sane state of mind I have realised how useful the Pretties Kit is. Hope my Mum likes her card!

  2. OH dear, I tried to comment on this and just realized I didn't see the verification word so it didn't save. What I was trying to say is that this is just lovely and I'm so glad you left me a comment on my blog because now I am a follower of yours! I love how you distressed the circle on this card and the layout and colors are perfect!


Thanks so much for leaving comments - reading them really does make my day!
