Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to all Mums. This is the card I made my Mum which is based on a card I made for Papercraft Inspirations recently. That card was an A6 but I used the A6 on a 6" easel for my Mum. It is the first time I tried making a flower out of lace and I really like the result. I took a length of lace and sewed running stitch along one side and then pulled it into a circle and sewed along the join and added a rose.
