The Squirrel and the Fox #69 Mother's Day

Good morning! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

It's The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge time once again! Our theme this time is Mother's Day

Our sponsor is Doodle Pantry do have a look at their lovely digis! There are even some freebies so you can 'try before you buy'!

On my card I used Rose Bloom.

I used Spectrum Noir pens to colour two of the images, and cut out the flower from one and decoupaged it on top of the other, using foam pads. Then the whole image was added to a mat of white card and green card die-cut with a Spellbinders Stately Circles die, and also added with foam pads.

The background paper is from the 'Floral Pavilion' stack by First Edition, the dots and roses are all glossy - very pretty! The ribbon is from stash. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley. I added some Cotton Candy Stickles to the flowers on the sentiment and also in the main image.

I'm pleased with how it turned out - the rose was a joy to colour, the shading already on the image was such a help for putting down the darkest ink!

I hope you'll take a look at my teamies' creations, they are sure to inspire you to join in with your own Mother's Day creation!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
