For a Special Mum

Hi folks,
Just wanted to share with you the Tilda card I made for my wonderful mum for Mother's Day. I have really fallen in love with the gorgeous DP's in the new Picadilly collection from Basic Grey even if they do include yellow!.

I coloured this lovely Tilda with Aqua Markers and used 300gsm Fabrico Artistico Water Colour Paper. Everything has been distressed with Pumice Stone DI and given a bit of sparkle with Diamond Stickles.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Simply Magnolia - 'Anything Goes'
Friday Sketch Challenge - #13 'Sketch by Bron'
MDUC - #138 'Old Treasures' (The doily came from my nan's kitchen drawer and the charm was taken from a department store gift box)
I Love Promarkers - #108 'Anything Goes'
Passion for Promarkers - #140 'Yellow and Pearls'
Papertake Weekly - 'For The Girls or Mum'

Well that's all from me today
Happy Crafting!
