Mother's Day card



I've made this card for my MIL for mother's day - I love making cards for MIL because she's always really pleased with them :o) My mum is slightly more difficult - haven't made her card yet!

I've used a sweet Elizabeth Bell digistamp, coloured with promarkers (surprise surprise lol). Cream scalloped card blank from Craftwork Cards, red cardstock from my stash and Cosmo Cricket paper. The lace was a recent bargain find from a local market stall - 3 metre lengths for 50p! I bought a few different ones and would've bought more but hubby was with me! Buttons from Bunny Zoe's, Papermania flowers with pearl centres from stash, downloaded sentiment from Pink Petticoat.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
