DV 52 Mother’s Day

Our challenge at Dream Valley this fortnight is Mother’s Day. We are sponsored by Freckled Fawn with a $20 voucher for their store.DV 52 1

I made a tent card (by the way, it’s a good job you cannot see the back! what a mess, trying to get it to stand up, lol).

Anyhow the image is a digi from Pink Gem and she is called Chloe on Swing. I coluored her with my copics and then trimmed her out. I stuck her to a Memory Box Lavish Branch diecut, boy that was difficult too. Hardly any branch, hardly any rope, lol. Anyhow, she is suspended from the branch die so actually does swing.


The bench is  Marianne die, which I then dabbed at with a couple of different DIs to make it look as if it has been sitting in the garden for a while. The butterfly is also a Marianne die, as is the potted plant, which I die cut from pale green felt. I was surprised how well the die went through the felt. I then embossed it and inked through onto the embossed areas. The sentiment is a peel off which I coloured to tone in with the card, onto a Marianne Tag Die.


The papers are from Prima’s Sparkling Spring pad. I stuck them both down onto 180 gsm card, and the front of the tent card I trimmed out the inside of the paper so that Chloe could hang in the aperture.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day! I was so busy moving my bedroom around, a marathon task, I forgot to blog this yesterday. My Daughter has a bad dose of flu so I get to have a special and totally unique Mother’s Day next Sunday instead!
