Time for a Mother's Day card - PDCC #28

I’ve always thought it’s quite interesting how different countries celebrate some things on different dates. I suppose I’m just too used to celebrating Christmas and New Year’s on the same day (bearing in mind the time zones lol!) whichever country I am in at the time ;-).

In the UK, Mothering Sunday was on the 14th March, US is celebrating Mother’s Day today and in Poland our mums have their day on the 26th May.

As I’m Polish it was finally time for me to make a card for my Mum as well ;-).

I was really pleased with the challenge colours at the Play Date Café #28 this week as I instantly knew my Mum will LOVE this colour combination.

Below is my entry:


I’ve finally had the opportunity to use my new Flower Soft stamps for the first time ;). I coloured the image with brush marker pens and added a few sparkly gems for a more sophisticated look lol ;))). To give it a softer edge I used light pink chalks. Unfortunately you can’t see it on the pictures very well.


The sentiment is framed by Tim’s ornate plate, “shabby chic’ed” to fit in with the theme colours ;-). And there had to be room for my tiny butterflies!

 I hope my Mum likes the card! And I hope you like it too ;-)
