On your special day

   This fortnight the theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge is add a sentiment.
   I was asked to make a card for a friend's mother who was about to celebrate her 90th birthday and who liked gardening and owned a cat. I matted two shades of centura pearl card onto white card and then added various die cuts to the card. All the dies used were Tattered Lace ones and this is the list of those used:
   Tiddles (the cat)
   Autumnal hedgerow (for the background roses)
   Meadow sweet (for the sentiment)
   Long stemmed rose (for the leaves)
All die cuts were coloured using Promarkers and I added Stickles to the rose centres.
A peel off was used for 'to mum' and I added two flowers from Wild Orchid.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Passion For Promarkers - make it bloom
   The Paper Shelter - flowers
   Crafting By Designs - anything goes
   Seize the Birthday - anything goes
   Kitty Bee Designs - anything goes with for mum
   Crafty Girls Creations - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - a hint of pink
   Dies R Us - flowers
   As You Like It - favourite die (autumnal hedgerow because you can chop it up and use it in so many different ways)
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Crafty Creations - anything goes
