Happy Mothers Day

Hi Folks
Happy Mothers Day to all you lovely Mummy's in the UK.  Hope you have all had a good day.  My daughters got me some flowers and choccies and are taking me out for lunch tomorrow.  They are such good girls and I have had a lovely relaxing day.  

Today's card is one I made for my Mum for Mothers Day.  I have made several Mothers Day cards this year so prepare to see a few more over the next few days.


I recently treated myself to a Tonic Verso Delicate Lattice Ovals die and this is my first creation using it.  It cuts beautifully and created a lovely centrepiece for the card.  The flowers are from my Spellbinders delicate asters die.  I used pink card as a contrast to the white (although it looks more peach coloured in this photo lol).  The embossed background is an embossalicious folder.  The butterflies are a punch and I added a white ribbon bow and some pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do enjoy reading all your comments.
