Mothers Day

***********
8" sq

A commission (lol) from my g/children for their Mum. This is bigger than intended because I printed the backing paper the wrong size. Being a cheapskate I didn't want to waste it so used an 8" card blank instead of  the 5 1/2"  -  however could that be considered being thrifty, duh.

The lovely paper is a freebie from Lenascrap a really beautiful collection.
Of course I didn't want to cover this up, it is so pretty, so the design is very simple.





Ribbon, lace and gold brads. The heart is digital made in PPx5




I bought this gorgeous sparkly button and the lace from the local market.



I made the faux 'nestie' in Serif PPx5. I don't have a real one so improvised.
