I Love Promarkers (58) - Go Dotty
Simon Says - Mother's Day/Girlie
Dutch Dare (105) - Celebrations
Allsorts (96) - For A Special Lady

Time for another great challenge at Creative Inspiration and this time the theme is Mother's Day/Mum and we are being sponsored by Joanna Sheen who is kindly donating a £10.00 voucher for one lucky winner.

As we no longer have a mother my sister and I exchange Mother's Day cards instead and this is the card I have made for her. As you can see it has more than one fold so a bit different. I have never made one of these before and I don't know what they are called either but, they are great fun to make. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and simply layered it. The sentiment has been stamped and to finish it off I have added a few flowers and gems. I hope you like this little card, thanks for looking.

Card Recipe

Stamps - LOTV/Kanban
Paper - Pink Petticoat
Flowers/Gems - Stash
