For Mother in Law



Another card I've had to wait till they had received it. Well it was MIL birthday yesterday and I'm pretty sure she loves the more traditional cards rather than cute. The card was inspired by the one I made for Nikki's Workshop which I thought I had posted but I haven't so will have to track them down.
The word paper is again Stamping Up but the dotty paper is from DCWV  and behind the image is a Cherry Lynn doily die that I saw on QVC but someone on facebook pointed it out how much cheaper it was in a couple of online shops. It was all distressed to get the aged look, if all my distressing turns out like this I may do it again.
The gorgeous bluebell image is a digi from Just Inklined and I spent quite a while working out the layers. The actual colouring didn't take long and I cut two bluebells out at a time instead of individually.
