one for mum

Well not my Mum, but someones Mum... hopefully :)
I took a few cards into Jewlz today, Julie had asked for some mothers day cards that don't actually say mothers day on them.
I'm combing the colour/embossing challenge at Embellish who are being sponsered by Practicing Creativity Designs, also the Mothers Day theme over at Paper Popsicles who have a digi image freebie PLUS an amazing monthly prize (see the pic in my sidebar...) and also entering Challenge #45 ~ Make your own flowers at Die Cut Dreams who have some yummy flowers up for grabs.
You may have seen me use these paper roses in an earlier post... but if not I found a fantastic tutorial by the fabulous Rae... Click on her name to check out her sensational cards!
This should have been a quick card, but I wanted to complete the colour challenge and it took me ages to get it to work. Love how it turned out and I can see myself using Rae's rose technique again and again... watch out!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're all looking forward to a wonderful weekend, I'm catching up with my fabulous friend Kim on Saturday and we're going to get crafty :)
I can't wait!
Happy blogging xx
