Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - #5 - Mums, the word.

Over at the Stamptacular Challenge Blog the theme for today is 'Mums, the word!' As it is nearing Mother's Day over in the states (already been and gone here in the UK in March) people are planning and making Mother's Day cards to give.

Soooo... I made a card for my mum - but without it being a 'mother's day' card.
I have used Tilda here holding a flower basket, she is sooo sweet!

I coloured using Copics, and highlighted again with Inkssentials opaque pen.
The papers are a freebie from Donna at Bearly Mine Crafts - as a preview for the new release disks Designer Inserts Extreme and Designer Extreme Vol II out on May 5th

The script paper is from Designer Extreme Vol I and thought that it fitted in nicely with the colour scheme.

The flowes are from a Flora Doodle set that I bought the other week. The Brad and Dangling Charm are both from my stash. The Sentiment is from the free stamps with the new creativity magazine out now for Docrafts.

Thanks for looking!

Oh I like what you've done with the freebie papers Kim, and your coloring is really good, I see you're getting the hang of that white pen now, and what a fabulous chain and charm arrangement once again and thanks for joining in on the Stamptacular Sunday challenge this week.
