Mother's Day Card

Hooray it's Sunday & the sun is shinning, I really hope Spring is on the way :o)

Mother's Day is always a funny time of the year for me (as are many other occasions) because I lost my Mum when I was 20 & it's something you never get over. But anyway I've made this card for my Mother-In-Law Joy who is a treasure. I managed to combine 5 challenges for this card:-

Whiff of Joy - Lavender & Lace
My Time to Craft - Hats!
Charisma Cardz- Pretty Cards/Pretty Cards for Mum
ABC - Distressing
Sketch & Stash - I used their fab sketch

The papers are from the Papermania "Amethyst Infusion" stack, the images are from my fantastic new(ish) WOJ Spring set coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I added self adhesive lace, a white flower which I chalked lilac, some punched flowers with gems & finished off with a button covered with Glamour Dust & a printed greeting.
