Time to start the Mother's Day cards

I am selling at a craft fair in a couple of weeks so thought I had better get my skates on and get some Mother's Day cards made. Over at Pollycraft it's my good friend Lynsey's challenge of ribbons and buttons so thought I must play along. These Cherry Kisses images are some of my faves. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a touch of Sakura bluestar and purple glaze pens for shine.I have distressed the edges and used some of the old Forever Friends papers again. I added some lace and cherry ribbon, Prima flowers, pearls and flower buttons from Stamposaurus. I stamped the sentiment onto kraft card and doodled round the edge to match the frame on the digi image.
Other Challenges:
Crafts and Me Distressing
Colour Create Lilac, blue, kraft and white
