Surprise your Mom at Michelle Perkett Studio

It doesn't seem 2 minutes since our last challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio but its Tuesday again so its time for a new challenge and this week our theme is

It was Mother's Day on Sunday here in the UK and I don't think its long until our friends in Europe celebrate their Mothers Day. I've used this lovely image 'Thanks Mum' for this card, I love the cute little girl cudding her mum ... so sweet! You can find this gorgeous image in Michelle's Etsy Store

As usual the image is coloured wiht promarkers and this time I've carefully cut it out. I've used a bp from the lovely 'Essence of Nature' cd by Artylicious and highlighted the swirls with faux pearls using my viva pearl pen. The image is layered up on a lovely square doiley and to finish off I've added plenty of lilac and white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a pretty charm from Bunny Zoe's crafts.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion: Anything goes
Crazy Challenge: Add flowers
Creative Inspirations: Mother's Day
I did it creations: Anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles: Lets get Girly
Paper Play: for mum
Sarah Hurley Challenge: Mums the word
Stamp Something: April Digi Day
Thanks for visiting today, if you're a UK mum I hope you had a wonderful day on Sunday, my son certainly surprised me as for the first time in years I got a card and pressie :-)
 I hope you can join our challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio this week, you can pick up an image from Michelle's Etsy Store or why not  grab a freebie from Michelle's group on Papercraft Planet.
