A Framed Pansy For Mother's Day

Penny Black AT Allsorts - Welcome Spring

As it is Springtime and Mother's Day is fast approaching I have made this card with that in mind. As I no longer have a mother to give a card to this one will go to one of my nieces. My computer tends to change my colours blue and green around so I will just clarify that the colour I have used is indeed green (Pastel Green Promarker) and not blue. Okay, now that is sorted let's get on with the card. I couldn't wait to have a go with this great sketch and it suited my image perfectly. I coloured the image, sentiment, lacey circles, doily and lace with Promarkers so that all the colours would match in with my old papers that I wanted to use. Having attached all the pieces I just added some lace around the image and some pearls around the doily. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
