For Mum

Good Morning,

Today morning I have a card to share, for Mum.
I wanted to give it a bit more of a shabby look
and I was very brave, after I'd finished colouring her I let water drop off the 
brush around her and just left it. So the little "splats" were intentional LOL!

I have used:
Best Dress, available from the latest gorgeous collection
Tim Hotltz ~ DIs, Chip block alphabet and Butterflight edge
Marianne ~ English roses
Wild Orchid ~ Pearls 
Michele Roos ~ Digi papers

I have quite a few emails asking were I get my mesh from,
It's actually "cotton scrim" from the builders section at B&Q
you get a huge  90m roll for under £4 ~ Bargain!

Thanks for looking

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Fleur,
I have just left the LOTV website and left you a comment there, so I will not repeat myself.
I really like this card, it is the cutest image and the way you have used it (shabby chic) makes it perfect for a mother or even grandmother. The butterfly diecut and flowers are perfect embellishments.
Have a good week all. Hugs Linda
