Spring has sprung (almost!) and we will be thinking of Mother's Day soon. This year is flying past and March will be upon us in the blink of an eye so it's best to be prepared! The last couple of cards that I've posted would, of course, be suitable for Mother's Day as is this one. The card base is a Z-fold and the papers are from a Pink Petticoat freebie that came with Cardmaking & Papercraft mag. I cut this fab pot and stem (I added the bloom afterwards) from various cardstocks and layered 'em up. The completed image was adhered with foam pads to an embossed, scalloped circle and the flower added with silicone glue. The scalloped circle was then adhered to the front of the card slightly overlapping the back. An EK Success border with thin ribbon added was adhered to the front and inside back of the card.
The inside of the card holds the 'Happy Mum's Day' sentiment cut from pink cardstock. The circle was cut slightly smaller to ensure that it is hidden when the card is closed. A smattering of blue pearls completes the card.
