Today I decided to sit down and make my Mothers Day Card for my Mum. I'm actually going to be away from home over Mothers Day (I have actually just realised this and I don't think Mum has yet, oops...) but I'll leave the cards behind for her and my Gran.

I had a lot of trouble deciding what do to for this card... but in the end, I turned to the challenge blogs and put a few of them together to design the finished card.

I used Wild Rose Studio's 'in love with Japan' papers. The image is Lily of the Valley, coloured with Promarkers - lavendar, cornflower, duck egg, sandstone, mustard, china blue, sky blue, amythyst, lilac, caramel. The buttons, ribbon and charm all came from my stash (and mostly from the discount craft bins in bargain books - I love that place! lol!)

The challenges I used/am submitting too are:
