Simply Create Too Challenge 13 - Mothers Day / Female

Welcome to challenge 13 for Simply Create Too!  We have a lovely theme this fortnight:

Mothers Day / Female

I've used a wonderful topper from Cardmakers Delights which I have simply layered up with papers from Cosmo Cricket - Fleuriste paper pack.  The backing paper is also from the same collection and I've added some half pearls and flowers from my stash.  The ribbon is a very generous donation from my cousin Claire - I got all the left over ribbon from her Wedding stationery!

Tracy from Cardmakers Delights was generous to send me a selection of toppers just for me to play with!  I cannot fault the speed of delivery as they arrived the day after and Tracy is lovely to deal with!  I've got more of the toppers to show over the next few weeks but if you can't wait, pop to the store!  The size of the toppers I have are roughly similar to the old cigarette cards and are printed on really good quality card.

Good luck with the challenge!  For more details, pop over to Simply Create Too!

Celebrate the Occasion:  Mothers Day
Party Time Tuesday's:  Mum's The Word
Stamp and Doodle:  Mothers Day
Cupcake Craft:  Ooh La La!
Made Especially For You:  Mothers Day plus Ribbon
