Simply Create Too Challenge 13 MIDWAY EXTRA - Mother Day / Female

Welcome to the Midway Extra point of the current Simply Create Challenge!  As a reminder, the theme is:

Mothers Day / Female

I've used another of the wonderful toppers from Cardmakers Delights.  It's been layered onto an offcut of base card and then onto offcuts (look carefully you will see the joins!) from Tea House papers from Dovecraft.

The main dark pink spotty paper is a free download from Papercraft Inspirations magazine plus I've also got my inspiration from the magazine for the layout.

Ribbon is again from my cousin Claire - I think there are 4 different widths of the pale green ribbon so don't be surprised if you see more of it in the future!  I've made the bunting from an offcut of card - the printed card has been layered onto stiffer card so it didn't bend and then I've added some fake brads with a black marker and glossy accents.

You've still got time to enter the challenge - for more details click here to go to the blog!  Good luck!
