Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 28 March 2014 - Mother's Day or for a Special Female in your Life

 It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  The topic this week is "Mother's Day or for a special female in your life".  It is Mother's day here in the UK on Sunday 30 March 2014 but some crafters do not have their mothers in their lives so we have included the challenge for a "special female in your life".
This certainly wasn't an easy topic.  Today would have been my mum's 64th birthday but sadly she died in June 2011 aged just 61.  I have therefore made a card for a sister-in-law.

For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles digital image called "Butterfly Bliss".  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet distress ink.  The bright pink papers are from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD.  To the edge of the card I have added a Tim Holtz butterfly border.  

I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the computer, pearls, ribbon bow, gorgeous little cameo (I won a challenge recently and the sponsor was The Ribbon Girl and I chose a set of these little cameos along with lots of other goodies), Prima flower coloured with Tim Holtz's Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Victorian Velvet distress inks and some gorgeous little butterflies (this is a confetti die from Joanna Sheen's Signature Dies Range but it's perfect when you want little butterflies as embellishments).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
