Did you all have a wonderful Monday? It's bank holiday here in the UK. We took the kids to Wicksteed Park, a small theme park. The weather was warm and beautiful. We had a great time!
OK, I am here today to share this card for my wonderful mum to celebrate mother's day on the 2nd Sunday of May, i.e. 10th of May. Yep! I had my mother's day card from my girls already but I also have another mother's day to celebrate in Taiwan. This card is already on its way. I hope the card is already across the pacific ocean and it does arrive in good time for my mum. Anyway, this post is photo heavy but hope you enjoy it! ^_^
This is the first time that I will be participating in Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge blog. When I saw the latest challenge #29 Butterflies + L is for Lace, I knew this would be a great combination. So here is my card:
Anyway, moving on. Now the clever part is (well, I think it is clever! Hee hee!), there is a secret message hidden under this butterfly.
This took me ages to work out the folds, the cut and the partial die cutting too. After several tests on scrap paper, I am so glad that it turned out great! ^_^
Now, I hear you asking... so where is the L for lace? Hmmmm..... here they are, circled below:
I know, I know, they are not the usual laces that you are expecting to see. I found this strip of flower lace in my drawer. I positioned it here and there and I just can't seem to find a good place for this pretty lace. Maybe it's because the pattern paper I chose already has a horizontal line going across the top half of the card. So I decided to cut and disconnect the lacy flowers. I also didn't like the white plain look of these flowers, thus, I tried to colour them in with my Copic Ciao markers and they worked. Ha! Interesting and prettier then ever!
I love the look of these lacy flowers. I even continued it through the inside of my card.
Phew! I think that's the end of this post. I thank you if you have followed me all the way to this point. I do really love this card and I hope when my mum receives it she will love it too. Before I go, just tell you a little something. I received a compliment from my daughter Jasmine, she said "Mummy, I think this is the best card you ever made, ever!" Now, that just made my day!
Enjoy the rest of the week!
