Digital Tuesday and Fred She Said DT card

It's Lorraine's turn to host the challenge at Digital Tuesday this week and she has chose "A card for Mum" as the challenge. This could be a Mother's Day card or a Birthday card for a Mum or anything else that is for a Mum.
As my own Mum died 20 years ago, I decided to make a card for my MIL.
This is not my normal style of card but she likes flowers, so I think she will like this.
I must apologise yet again for the poor photo! I took it last night adn there was just no light at all. I can't wait for Spring to come!!

I followed the sketch over at Charisma Cardz for this one.
The carnation image is one of the new releases from Fred She Said which I have coloured with my pencils and oms and then added some glitter crystal laquer to all the petals so it is raised and shimmery.
The papers are K&Co, they are from different collections but I think they go well together.
I used scraps of K&Co paper to punch some flowers using a Dovecraft punch and a tiny flower punch that I have had in my stash forever, but I have no idea who makes it. Pearls are from my stash and gems are My Minds Eye. The sentiment is just done in Word, but I later remebered that FSS has a Mother's Day sentiment that is much prettier than this, so I think I will change that.

I have lots to do today so better get cracking!
Thanks for stoppin by.
