unforgettable mother's day

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well an looking forward to the weekend.
As you may know especially if you read my last post I had totally forgot about Mother's day (hhhmmm) so had to get a wiggle on when I was to make one for my Mother in Law to send to her Mother then I had to make my mother in Law one from us (oh boy) luckily for me my mother has shop brought cards now (hard lesson learned) so that was one less to make and think about  thankfully.
I started to colour this image Monday and has done a really grand job even if I do say so myself, I was really pleased with it but something was missing Ahhh haaaa the background!!!!!! it needs something rather than just the white of the cardso I cut a mask out and started to do the background only to go and bodge it up well would you begger it. Oh well I thought nothing lost I can fussy cut around it and do another background. Well let's just say that didn't go to plane either so I decided to start again and here is the finished card (phew I did enjoy making it though)

 papers are from Pixel scrapper and papercellar they have been distressed and inked with spun sugar brushed corderoy DI then matted onto white card which has also been distressed.

I used some burlap ribbon and lace from my stash and the flowers (in the corners)are digital embellishments I cut out then added a gem too

 The gorgeous image is a Mo Manning Image called I forgot I think it's adorable and just right for my MiL as she LOVES elephants. This sweetie hs been coloured in with prisma pencils and has also been given the distressed treatment after being die cut out

 To finish off i made the insert bringing the image in to co ordinate and  adding a small verse I left the image uncoloured in this insert thought it looked better with the colour of the papers I didn't want to over do it
I also brought the digital flowers and put them in the corners and there you have it

 Well I hope you al have a lovely weekend and all you Mom's out there have a fantastic lazy Mother's Day on Sunday
Thanks for popping over I will see you again very soon and I leave you with another look at thie gorgeous image and a list of challenges I would like to enter Mums Ribbon & lace bingo (dies,image, gems) focus on image ATG ATG

Hello Jacki. What an amazing creation. Your colouring of that cute elephant is just wonderful, such a talented lady. Beautiful papers and design, I just love all the layers and everything is so beautifully co-ordinated. The lace and braid is so delicate and adds the most wonderful textures to it, very SPECIAL indeed.
Happy crafting sweetie.
Lots of love, Sandra xxxx
