For a mum or special female

   Today's theme for our new challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is for a mum or special female. Again we have three generous sponsers: Deedee's Digis ($15 gift certificate), A Day For Daisies ($12 gift certificate) and Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet ($6 gift certificate).

   My first card uses a digi from A Day For Daisies called 'Vintage Mother Flower'. I coloured it using Promarkers and then matted it onto core'dinations cardstock.
   I then embossed centura pearl card using Sheena Douglas' floral fabric folder, wrapped ribbon round it and matted it onto pink card. The matted image was then attached to this afterwhich I added a double bow and a peel off sentiment which I had coloured using pens.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   My Craft Creations - anything goes
   Crafty Catz - anything goes
   Papertake Weekly - pastels
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Monday - pastels
   Suzy Bee's Bloomin' - anything goes with the twist use pastel shades
   A Gem of a Challenge - anything but square

   My second card uses a digi from a Deedee's Digis set called 'special lady'. I printed it three times and coloured them using Promarkers. One I cut out to include the white background using a Tattered Lace die, the other two I cut out part of the image and used to decouparge the image. I then matted it onto core'dinations cardstock which had also been cut out using a Tattered Lace die. I coloured some peel off letters using a permanent marker and formed a sentiment.
   The background paper is from The English Paper Company's  Siesta collection and I matted and layered this onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Whoopsi Daisy - add a sentiment
   Crafty Calendar - add a sentiment
   In The Pink - celebrate!
   Buckwell's Crafty - colour challenge
   Fab 'n' Funky - lots of layers
