Pattie's Creations Challenge #91 Mother's Day


Today I would like to share my DT card for Patties Creations. Challenge #91 The theme is Mother's day. One of the interesting things about being on an international team is that we celebrate mothers day not only on a different date but a different month too. In the UK we have mothers day in March and this coming Sunday is mothering Sunday in the USA. Please pop over to the Pattie's Creations Challenge blog to take a peek at the gorgeous creations made to inspire you, by my very talented team mates. The rules are simple you must use a stamped image that can be digital or traditional. We obviously would like you to use one of pattie's beautiful images from her etsy shop, but others are allowed. You can enter a max of 2 projects. Full list of rules can be found here.
Materials Used.
Super smooth white card , printing onto this gives you the perfect surface to color a digital image, with Alcohol pens.
The image i used is Pansies In Pitcher by Pattie's Creations.
I cut the plate card, stand, tag and flowers on my Silhouette Cameo from white card. I then colored them with promarkers to match the image.
Promarkers vanilla, primrose, lemon, bright green, plum, mulberry, aubergine, purple, amethyst, orchid, lavender, lilac, violet and Prussian blue.

  4. Interesting point about Mother's Day being different months in different countries Julie-Ann. I guess we should all really be giving our Mother's (and Mother Substitutes) cards every month really. You did a fab job with this image - it is one of my favorite Pattie's Creations images (the toaster is still my favorite). Love the extra flowers you added on the sides too. Hugz!

  9. Actually, Mother's Day in Canada, the US and several other countries is held next Sunday on the 11th, not this one. It is traditionally always the second Sunday in May in many parts of the world. Although it will be Mother's Day this coming Sunday for people living in Portugal, Spain, Hungary and a few other locations. It is interesting how it is on different dates throughout the year in other countries. Interestingly, July and September are the only months of the year that you DON'T find a country or two celebrating Mother's Day. Love the variation in this world of ours and it was only when I started my blog did I take the time to start seeking these things out.

    What a cool card and stand. Love the additional pansies around the edges. Wonderful job Julie-Ann!
