A card for mum!


Hi friends!

Today's card is one that I made for my mama!

She's affectionally called mum by many of her friends as she is English born.

My love of flowers (and flower stamps!) was inspired by her

and her amazing green thumb!

I'm a member of the Altenew Paint-a-Flower subscription.

Awhile back, I signed up for it and said let's give it 3 months :)

This is the Calla Lily flower and

 it made me smile as they were part of my wedding bouquet.

I'm waiting to see when mum gets the card, if she notices!

For this card, I did a watercolor wash with the Altenew pans,

let it dry and then popped it up on foam for dimension.

The sentiment is embossed with WOW white embossing powder 

and a few enamel dots finished the card!

I have to say, and I don't say it too often, I adore this card!

I don't know if it's because it's for mama or that I made with 'love in the stitches'

but it is just so lovely to see!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
