My Dearest Friend

This is the Mothers Day card I made for my dear 87 year old Mum. The base is made from Kraft card and I used 6.5 x 6.5 inch papers from Kaisercraft (Forget-Me-Not) pad throughout. A number of mats were cut in a variety of papers, one being edged with sewing.  The swirl is die-cut through a Big Shot machine..
The sentiment was stamped and matted onto some more paper and applied on foam pads as shown.  The real lace is English Cluny and was applied with thin red line tape. 
The main image is a Gorguss Girl stamp and was stamped in Memento tuxedo black ink, coloured with Copic markers, trimmed out and applied on foam pads.
The sewn mat was embellished with a paper flower and a paper rose centred with a half faux pearl.  Most of the mats and flowers were edged with fired brick Distress Ink applied with cut'n'dry foam.
Very pink don't you think !
