Mother's day card!!!




This is a card I have made for my own mum. I really liked the mischevious kitten image and I think she will too. I am still experimenting with new layouts and colours as I don't want my stuff to look too samey. I am going to enter this into as many challenges as I can find. This is only the second easel card I have ever made too.

Image was a free digital image by motivet coloured in with Promarkers. I also used a little gold pearlescent chalk around the image so it didn't look too flat and a little pink pearlescent chalk on the flower (It's probably more noticable in real life) I also used glossy accents on the eyes and nose.
Papers are from Summer Driggs "Angel Mother" free downloadable kit - Inks used to distress the edges
Yellow and chocolate textured card from DCWV
Brown crochet ribbon from quixotic
Yellow ribbon, fabric flowers and diamantes from stash
Sentiment done on computer - font is scriptina which is one of my favourites!

I am entering this into the following challenges:-

Craft - ribbons and sparkle
Magical crafts - something for mum
Crafty creations - dimension
Cute card thursday - ribbon-tastic
Pile it on - Lucky me because my mum is fab!
Totally gorgeous - It's for you mum!
Kaboodle doodles - fancy folds
Everybody art - easel card
Paperplay - for a mother
Allsorts - mother's day
Quirky crafts - cute
Lexis creations - anything goes
Clearly I stamp - it's hip to be square
Stamp, scrap and doodle saturdays - sparkle
My time to craft - in the frame
Tellen's place - anything goes
The treehouse stamps - bling
Incy wincy - touchy feely
Crazy for challenges - texture
Practical scrappers - stamp (any type)
Crafty catz - fancy edge and ribbon
Gingersnap creations - 3 colours you love (I chose pink,yellow,brown)
Creative belli blog - butterflies (or dragonflies)
Practical scrappers - inks/chalk
Creatalicious challenges - Create a little something
Simon says - mother's day/girly
My time to craft - just for mum
Simon says stamp - mother's day/girly

It would be nice to see a link back to the challenges you've chosen to enter your card into tho! That way it 'spreads' the news! and allows others to have ago too AND also lets us DT members see which card you're entering straight away!! (Of course...you may still be doing that as I type!!)

  8. This is lovely Paula, a really sweet image and I love easel cards. Spyder is right about linking challenges on your post, I think some challenges won't accept an entry if there is not a link to them on the post. And of course we all like to see if there is a challenge we can enter too!
    Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

  9. I've only been blogging about 2 weeks so I don't know how to link up to the original sites otherwise I would. I have asked a fellow blogger for some advice so I hope to do it in future challenges.

  12. Yay!!! I've just managed to link up all the challenges to the originating site all by myself Lol. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be as I am a bit of a technophobe :o) I think I've remembered all the ones I entered - if I've missed an odd one off then I'm sorry but it was a bit of nightmare back-tracking!!!
