Simply Create Too Challenge 31 - Mother's Day / Female

Welcome to the Midway Extra point for the current Simply Create Too challenge.  The theme this fortnight is:

Mother's Day or Female

I've gone for the Mother's Day option and used papers from Dovecraft - Back To Basics 2 6x6 stack (which were also a bargain - half price at £1.49!)  I don't usually use green in female cards - quite happy in male cards but for some reason not something I go for in feminine cards!

I've used a fab digi from Jellypark - Two Mice 'For You' which was a previous freebie if you were a Jellypark Club member - its free to join!  I've coloured it with Promarkers and added some tiny half pearls to the corner.

I've made the banner with some lilac card I found and layered it onto an offcut of the green spotty paper.  I handwrote the letters and then added faux brads with a black marker and daubed liquid pearls over the top.  The ribbon and embroidery thread are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details and how to enter, pop over to Simply Create Too!
