Mother's Day 2013

You may recognise this fabulous cut-file as one from Bird's Cards which she kindly shared with us this year. Whilst I do just A-D-O-R-E making my own files, this one just 'shouted to me' and I am sure that my mother-in-law will love it too. The paper I chose to peep through the cut-work is from Bearly Mine.  I can't help but think that my own late mother would have just loved the colours & tones of this floral design.

From the back you can see how it opens & closes too - perfect for sending flat!
Not only used on the front of the card, but the dp is on the back also, where here it is layered up, incorporating just one of the floral elements of the card base cut into the corner of the sentiment mat. (Yes, I do know that there is no sentiment there at present, LOL, but I will hand-write on this blank space later for a complete personal touch). I couldn't help but add an image too - well, I do like to colour! This one is from A & T Digital called 'Spring roses with butterfly' and I coloured this pared down version in its circular mat with Promarkers.  I then finished the back of my card off with a silver peel-off.
