Happy Mother's Day

Hello Dear Friends,

Hope you are all well and having
lovely spring weather by now.


I hope you will want to join us once
you have checked out the Design
Team's Cards :o)
They are ALWAYS 
'to die for'.

For my card today I have made
my mother a Mother's Day card.
Our Challenge is to 'use Vellum'.
I don't think I have ever used Vellum
before - sure can't remember it if I did.

I had no idea what you could do with it,
so I am afraid I took the easy way out!!

I chose from Love Collection 2013
#355 Tilda with a Little Pocket.
You will find her right HERE

I have used one of the new
Spellbinders Dies called
Opulent Ovals, as well as 
the plain oval.
Shiny Bazzil Card Stock
and a flowered piece of
I also have used a Doohickey
Corner Die.
Seam Binding from 
The Ribbon Girl.

Here is a better look at Tilda:

You can see I used another 
Doohickey lace die for the bottom.
The charm, rhinestones, and
purple lace are all from my stash.

The tag was made by myself
and I did the writing as well.

The inside:

The sentiment is from Quietfire Designs
made by Suzanne Cannon.
All the butterflies are
punches from Martha Stewart.

I hope you have enjoyed my
work today.

Nice to see a "cleen" card. Although it's a simple one I love it. Beautifull paper, Tilda is colored so nicely. Love the dies you've used. And the text is nice!
