Mum's flowers

   We have another challenge starting at Creative Corner today, the theme being 'just for mum'.
   I used the Bugaboo digi 'Mom flower trio' to create my card. Below is my coloured version of the digi:

   As soon as I saw the image I wanted to try to create a bordered shape using it. Forming this border was the most tricky part of making the card.
   I repeated the digi three times across the bottom and top of a piece of white square card. I then selected half of the digi (leaving off the words) and repeated that part four times down the two sides of the card. Selecting one of the flowers I increased the size and placed it in the centre of the bordered square that I had formed.
   I coloured all the images using Promarkers and then matted and layered the design onto orange mirri card and white card. I then added a spotted orange bow to the central image.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   ABC - I is for inspire us

   QKR Stampede - Mother's day cards
