Mother's Day card

A Mother's day card for my OH's Mum. Not the best photo so may have to change that.
I love this combination of colours, purple, green and blue or in this case, Jade, Turquoise and Hyacinth.

The Bluebell is the Spanish variety and is decoupaged, which doesn't show very well. It's mounted on torn vellum and then on an A6 card with the front edge punched with a multiway punch (also doesn't show very well :( )
The peel off butterfly is stuck on acetate and cut out. It looks like it is stuck down at one tip but isn't - def need a better pic :)
The turquoise card fades, from right to left, to almost white.

Now hopefully this should appear on my blog while I'm away camping in the middle of Shropshire at a Motorbike Rally from Thursday to Sunday. Spare a thought for us as the temperature forecast is for -6 Celsius. I must be crazy - along with the other 200 or so other souls who will be there. ( It didn't publish as scheduled so am back home, typical )

Hope you like this in spite of the bad picture :)

Happy Crafting :) x
