Mothers Day

My friend wanted a card for her mum for Mothers Day so here it is. She told me that her mum loved lillies and luckily, after having a root around, I found this lily decoupage. What a nightmare though to trim around the stamens. It certainly tested my craft knife skills. Because the pieces were so tiny, I used silicone glue to layer them and was really pleased with the result. The background papers are from DCWV and the lettering from the Cuttlebug.

Sadly, I lost my mum along time ago and made this card was for my ex mum-in-law. She's been a part of my life for so long and I might not be married to Chris anymore, I still think of her as my second mum and love her to bits.

The papers are again by DCWV and the embossed frame, sentiment and flowers are Craftwork Cards. I chalked the frame but am stil not really sure what I think of the result.
