An old friend from school has recently got in contact with me through Facebook and has asked me to make a few cards for her. The first one I've done is this one for Mother's Day. I didn't want to overcrowd the front of the card so inside the greeting is with love on Mothering Sunday.
The Swalk image is coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens and I've added Icicle Stickles and Glossy Accents. Papers are from the Me to You Spring Chic pack, ribbon and gems from stash. Die is from Spellbinders.
