Choccy chose an image today by another new designer BB Kakes called Flowerboy 1. I thought this would be the perfect image to make a Mother’s Day card for my Mother In Law. I am so organised this year I am scaring myself !! Where is the real Mandy and what have the fairy’s done with her?

Anyhoo, I love chocolate and blue as a colour scheme and thought as it was a little boy in the image it would work well throughout the card. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and cut the image out using an X Cute die.

I used as sketch from  Sketchy Challenges for the layout and selected textured card and papers from a DCWV drawer set that I had from QVC years ago. The card blank is a large 8” square and I used oodles of Craftwork Cards Candi along the scalloped edges. The circle sentiment is a fabulous freebie from Netty’s Cards mounted on 3d foam.

The selection of paper and felt flowers are all from a recent purchase from a Facebook Buddy.  She was having a clear out of loads and loads of flowers and I figured they could be my Valentines pressie, they will definitely last a lot longer than the real thing anyway J
