Gruffies and Guests Challenge - March 2014 - Fit for your Mum

 On 1 March a new challenge started over at the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  The topic was "fit for your mum".  Team A showed you their creations and now it is time for Team B to show you their creations.  You still have two weeks to enter so please pop on over to the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog and have a look.
The Scribble & Scrap Shop
The sponsor this month is the Scribble and Scrap Shop and they are offering the lucky winner £15.00 to spend in their shop.
This is my third Mother's Day without my mum so it wasn't an easy card to make but that's all about what a challenge is about.  For my card I have used some Joanna Sheen's decoupage from a set called "Gruffies .... Beary Good Times" as I thought the little bear was either helping or hindering his mum hanging out the washing.  I have cut the decoupage out and layered it up.

The backing papers I have used are from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD and I have gone for a hot pink and China blue combination after picking the blue and pink from the decoupage image.

I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, sentiment off the computer, flowers coloured with Tim Holtz's Picked Raspberry distress ink and some peel-off stickers with the letters "mum" stuck onto some card and then tiny pegs added to them for dimension.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
