Mother's Day - Good Enough to Eat!!

Here's the card I've made my Mum (seems most cards have been for her recently - Christmas, Birthday, Valentine's Day...)



The image is Wendy's "Cupcake Tilly" from Digital Doodling available here. I've used Whispers to colour her in. I've used Cosmic Shimmers to make a background on the scalloped topper (although can't see it shimmer in the photo) and embellished with gems!
The paper is a free download from Cuddly Buddly - love the colours! Flowers & ribbon from Papermania Sunshine Capsule Collection, with glitter brads & buttons. The sentiment is from an old Let's Make Cards pack.

Such a 'sweet' card. Love all the purple. How nice of you to make so many cards for your mum. You are either a wonderful daughter, or you have a fabulous mother. Or, maybe both? LOL! THanks so much for playing the DTC this week!
