Mother's Day card for Mum

Hi again!

Sorry I've been so lax in updating my blog but the truth is I've been so tired and unwell, I haven't been able to do much crafting.  I've had some blood tests done and it turns out I'm very anaemic and need an iron infusion at hospital some time soon. Hopefully that give me the boost I need!

I did manage to make this card for Mum for Mother's Day. She's always there for me and I love her to bits.

The image is a Unity stamp coloured with Koh-i-noor Pencils and Sansodor Oil. The double sided designer paper is by Memory Box and the retro flowers are punched (using the other side of the paper) and a brad pushed through the centre.  The fern leaves are punched with a McGill punch and the sentiment is from Elzybells.  The green strip is Bazzill embossed dots card and the edges are punched with a Martha Stewart scallop dot edger punch.

Thanks for visiting :)

Beautiful card Sarah, bet your Mum loved it!
Hope you'll start to feel better soon - I would be a bit anaemic too but the bottled iron usually sorts me out, it's wick how tired and washed out it makes you feel
