Bearly Mine Designs - 5 March 2013 - Mother's Day

Today is the day for another challenge over at the Bearly Mine Challenge Blog.  This time the topic is "Mother's Day".

This week we are lucky to be sponsored by:
and the lucky Kenny K winner gets to pick 5 digital images of their choice from the Kenny K Store
Marianne Design who have offered this gorgeous set of two dies for the lucky winner.
Well who wouldn't want to win either of these prizes.  If I wasn't on the Design Team I would be first in the queue!!
For my card I have used the Kenny K digital image called "Super Mom".  I can't say this was an easy card to make.  This will be the second Mother's Day without my mum.  In her honour I made the card in her favourite colour green - but a colour I dislike!!!  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Light and Christmas Traditions.  Whenever I buy papers/digital papers I like to get as much use out of them as possible and these two digital sets show they are not just for Christmas.  I have inked all the edges of the papers with a chalk ink pad.  I made little flowers out of punches and bits of the backing papers leftover.  The card has been finished off with some die-cut shapes, Papermania Glitterations, ribbon and peel-off sentiment.
