Mother's Day

************

This is for big g/son to give to DD.

I actually like how this turned out which is just as well as I faffed around for ages 'til I was satisfied.
Not the usual mother's day colours maybe but I love this swirly paper







I got the sparkly button from the local market.  I didn't want to put any thread through the holes so I covered them up with a couple of gems - you'd have to look very closely to see the join :)






Lots of foam tape/pads on these three layers.






Ingredients
Papers - Papermania Sunshine PP
Nellie frame - gold mirri
Other circles hand cut
Seam binding ribbon
Flowers - WOC
Punched leaves
Gems



Challenges
PTT #59 - monochromatic
Dream Valley #27 - mother's day
Crafts & Me #75 - let's see circles
FYI #26 - photo - inspired by the colours
Creative Inspirations #154 - something for Mum


Thank you for stopping by.
Cheers me dears
