Mothers Day


 
Hi and Good Morning. :)
 
Our new challenge this week at Cheery Lynn  Designs  is 'Mothers Day', and as always the winner will receive a brilliant $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn Store, so well worth playing along.
 
Now, sadly, I dont have my mum around anymore, but still find myself making cards that I know she would have really liked, and she loved anything with faeries, butterflies and flowers, so  she would have really loved this card too.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch card base, and layered MME papers (and scraps) onto white American Crafts cardstock.  All the die cuts were made with this same card too, as it cuts beautifully.
 
I used 4 new release dies on this project, and started off by bordering the side panel with the City Girl Edger, and layering on top the Vertical Mesh Heart border.  I tucked the stunning Felicity Doily behind my image and added one of the new words from the sentiments range at the bottom.  The flower is made from the fabulous Daisy Strip, and I  added a couple of my favourite butterflies to finish.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to join in this week, and dont forget there is always fresh inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today,

Alison, your card is so lovely! Dreamy and delicate, with just a touch of sparkle. Pink and white are my favorite colors. So, so pretty!
