2 Skeches 4 You Kazan 22 & 365 Cards Day 17

This is the mother' day card I have made for my MIL for sunday. I have used Kazan's sketch 22 over at 2 Sketches 4 You for the layout and Day 17's challenge at 365 Cards to use 3 buttons and 3 bows

The bottom paper is a printed vellum by Folia which I got from a wicked little craft shop in Stratford upon Avon. The sheet was mahoosive and it has lasted forever. It is so fab as you can't see adhesive through it and the colors are so rich. The top is black card with a white core that has been embossed using a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and sanded back a little to highlight the dots. The black ribbon is recycled from a box of Thorntons choccies, the red 'bows' are HOTP ribbon, the heart buttons are Papermania.

The rose image has been recycled from a shop bought card, the special Mum sentiment was printed out by moi ages ago and the other sentiment was from a Lets Make Cards pack and matted onto black to make it pop more. I had a small amount of the black ribbon left so added it to the top of the card with a heart shaped gem. I was n't sure about it but Paul likes it and it's his Mom the card is for.
