Simon Says...........Mother's Day/Girlie challenge

Thank you for all your fabulous entries to our Happy Birthday challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week we would like to see you create a 

card or project 
It will be Mother's Day in the UK on Sunday 3rd April and in the rest of the world on 9th May :-) Not all of us are lucky enough to have our Mum's still with us so we would like to see cards for a special girl in your life too :-)

This week the team are featuring Basic Grey and I used a mixture of Kraft  Paper and Green at Heart.  I embossed the panel with the Tim Holtz Checkerboard embossing folder and decided to use a sentiment rather than an image, I found this one on The Quote Garden, printed it and cut it with a Spellbinders Labels 4  I then inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink.
 I made the flower with the Tim Holtz Tattered flower die using pink cardstock and glossy accents to fasten it together, I finished it by spraying it with Pearl Glimmer Mist and added some small pearls beads to the center. The leaf are Magnolia leaves, again I inked the edges with the Victorian Velvet distress ink. The smaller roses are Prima mini roses, the rest from my stash, along with the feather. The swirl behind them is cut with a Sizzix
Swirl Die. The ribbon was from my stash and white until I died it with the Victorian Velvet distress ink and fastened it with a American crafts Pearl brad . The pearls are cut from a Prima Say It in Pearls swirl

I'm on dog walking duty whilst I'm in the UK so now I'm off to take the dog his walk, he's stood at the door waiting for me. Thankfully it's a beautiful day here and I won't end up mud up to my knees like last time!!
