Happy Mother's Day

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Mothering Sunday to you all especially my very own mum!

I would also like to send big hugs to those of you who have lost their mum's too as I know today can be very difficult for you too!

This is the card I made for my mum!

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square card.
2. First layer is embossed Kraft card using Vintage embossing folder from Crafter's Companion. I then distressed with DI ground espresso.
3. The next layer is sheet music which I tore down and distressed the edges.
4. I stamped Indigoblu Elsie stamp with Versafine vintage sepia onto Neenah card then embossed with WOW embossing powder, cut down and distressed with DI ground espresso.
5. To finish off I added the roses and a double bow, a metal corner and the sentiment reads "you are so special"

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
