I Love You Mom and DT Call

Hi Folks
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
Our challenge for this fortnight is 'I Love You Mom' in honour of Mothers Day on May 13th in the USA.
We have lucky to have three fab sponsors this month: Bugaboo StampsStamping Boutique and Eye Candie Creations who are all generously offering some free digi images to our winners.

We are also having a DT call.  So if you fancy joining a fab team then just add DT to your name when you enter the challenge. Alternatively pop over to Penny's and check out the email for our DT coordinator, Julie.

I was able to use a lovely image from Eye Candie Creations for my card:

The image was simply coloured with promarkers and I added some faux stitching around the edge.  This was then matted onto coredinations and then onto a doily.  The papers were free in a magazine some time ago. The finishing touches were the filigree metal corner, flowers, ribbon, sentiment and the lovely white letters.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Pan Pastel - Anything goes
One Stitch At A Time - Use a digi/Mothers Day
Paper Sundaes - Mothers Day
Sentimental Sundays - For a special woman
One Stop - Celebrations
Kaboodle Doodles - Honouring Mothers
Crafty Sentiments - Mothers Day
Celebrate the Occasion - Mothers Day
Stamp N Doodle - Mothers Day
Crafty Creations - Frame it

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your crafty creations.  Why not enter the DT call?
Take care
