For My Favourite Girl

Hey hey! I've been crazy this week with Mother's Day cards for friends... everyone wants a handmade card for their Mum for Sunday, isn't that great! I just love Mother's Day, because my Mum, and my Grand Mums (although departed) are awesomely special to me!

At For Fun Challenges this week, the challenge theme is For Your Favourite Girl.  And since it is almost Mother's Day, I chose to create something for (a) Mum. So here 'tis!

Ingredients: White cardstock; chalks; lace; pearls.... (must be my shortes ingredient list in history!)

I've created with a white cardbase, and a white image layer, sandwiching cream gathered lace.  The image layer uses an image from XXX, coloured with Pearlescent chalks, both neat, and painted with a waterpen.  I added a pearl border to the image layer.  I didn't over embellish, but wanted to keep a feminine look.

I am entering this card in the challenges at
Kaboodle Doodles - #118 Honouring Mothers (14/5)
Lollipop Crafts - #79 Mamma Mia! (14/5)
Love to Create - #14 For Mum/Special Lady (14/5)
Crafty Sentiments - Mother's Day (15/5)
Use It Tuesday - #31 All About Mum (20/5) Using one of my many hoarded laces!

Do pop over and join us at For Fun Challenges... we'd love to share our inspiration with you, and we'd love  to see your Best Girl creations!  Thanks for peepin'!
