Mother's day friends

Mother's Day Friends - Here is the card that I made for my mother for Mother's Day. I think it is nice to have a grown-up daughter, instead of the usual little girl. The sentiment with the image is also perfect for a mother on Mother's Day.

The image is Deco Art Friends by Michelle Perkett. I love the flapper girl hair. Also if you look closely at the grass doodles between the women it looks as if the word Mum is written out. I am sure that it was not intended to read that, but I chuckled when I noticed it.

My DP is DCWV Dear Heart, which I distressed.

Deco Art Friends were colored with Copic's. I used my purple Spicia pend on the leaves and stems and some Stickles on the women's belts and hair pieces.




Ribbon is Dots and Dashes. I tied my bow with my Bow Easy. The pin I made with a variety of beads and a corsage pin. The flower is Prima with a glittered brad in the middle. The wire and leaves are from my stash.




The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is Mother's day. Hop over there and she what the mermaids have done with this challenge.
