Mothering Sunday

It's Mothering Sunday here, in England, on Sunday.
This is the card I made for my Mum...

The gorgeous image is from 'A Day For Daisies.'... a digi stamp company.
(I love this style of drawing...and the fact it's a digi stamp,
means I can size it to whatever size I like... and they take up no room in my craft room!)
It's just like me, when I was young!
(I coloured it with my promarkers) 
I think my Mum will have a chuckle at this. 
I based it all, on an apron shaped card that I cut out free-hand.
(including the pocket, which was inked around the edge and also, around the card - and pocket - I 
drew some faux stitching, with my white sakura pen.)
Its hard to see in this photo, but the precious heart diecut is matt gold in colour.
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.
I finished the card with little ribbons threaded through each side.

Delightful. I love the coloring of the image and the apron shape of the card. The 3 D effect is marvelous - lifting the girl and her paints makes it so much more vivid.

So glad you could join us at Die Cut Divas.
