Mothers Day Card



Here's another Mothers Day card and this one is actually for my mum. I've combined a couple of challenges as I just haven't had card inspiration lately, but with these 3 fab themes I was well on my way getting this card finished! I used the Colour Create colourscheme 'orange, yellow and green', the sketch on Forever Friends to base my design around and the Cupcake Craft Challenge 'Spring'.
I've used:
  • Pale orange card
  • Embossed bird and vine card (thanks jo)
  • Olive and dark green silk ribbon
  • Yellow dotty ribbon
  • FF bear with heart image
  • Dotty yellow paper (paper pieced for the heart)
  • Yellow fabric flower
  • Orange paper flowers
  • Bright yellow paper
  • Orange jigsaw piece 'Mom'
  • Green inkpad
