For mum


   This week at Creative Corner the challenge is ‘texture’, so I have used as many different textures as I can on this card.
    I began by embossing deep pink core’dinations cardstock using Die’sire’s make a wish folder and then sanded it.  I wrapped lace round the bottom half  of this and then matted it onto white card. After dusting a heart shaped doily with distress ink I attached it to the top left hand corner.
    The image from Lili of the Valley called ‘Teddy – for mum’ was coloured using Promarkers . I then applied glossy accents to the two ‘M’ shaped balloons. This was then matted and layered onto pink mirri card and pink Glitter Silk cardstock.
    Finally I coloured a flower from Petaloo with Promarkers and attached it to the corner of the image gluing a card candi into the centre.

    I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Lili of the Valley – bingo (doily, lace, flowers)
