Mother's Day Magnolia

In Europe Mother's Day is in March, I live in the US and it's in May, since I can't get a Mother's Day card for my Nana in Scotland I decided to make my own.  Now I know it's past already but we usually send her cards in May so that's what this one is for.  My mum will be heading there in a couple of weeks and will be taking this with her so I wanted to get it on my blog before it was gone!

I used one of my favorite Magnolia's on this card.  I colored her in greens and when I made my card I was sure I had done her in blue's but she does match.  The paper I used is from TLC and the flowers are from CTMH and Prima.  The little charm is also from CTMH.  Ribbon is from TLC.  I colored her with copics.  She is popped off the page for a more dimensional look.  There is a ribbon slide under the knot and the safety pin to hold the charm that says LOVE.  I used little pearls on each of the flowers on the card.

It started out as a standard card like the one shown in the photograph but has since then been converted to an easel card so my Nana can display it!

The inside of the card (I kept it simple)

Thanks for looking and have a scrappy day!

Your flowers are a beautiful finishing touch. Glad you finished the inside. I always thing that the card isn't complete until the inside is finished...beautiful job!
