For Mum on Mother's Day

Just thought I would share this card I made for my mum this year.
Pink and purple because she likes really likes these colours, and all the pearls and lace to give it the femininity that fits her so well.
She doesn't have the internet so I know I can show it early.
 And it is sooo much fun being sneaky lol....


A big Thankyou to Avril who, last year, posted me some stamped images of this stamp that I enjoyed on one of her DT projects for FSC.  This one was on acetate and I cut it make a tag.
I hope you like it too Avril.

The background is DI's and ripped, distressed and gold embossed to add lushness.
Mum doesn't like things overdone, so I have had to restrain myself a little.

Enjoy!

I am entering this card in the following challenges...
