Mother's Day

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all mother. Here is my card to my darling mom. I made her an center step card with adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I won it long time ago and waited a perfect chance to use it. 

Sentiment: "To world best Mom"
 Image is colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Sentiments are made by me. I also made a red rose myself. Putting together a rose is difficult for me. I've always started with center and added layers to bottom. It took me so long time because pieces didn't stay in my hands. But now I saw amazing video tutorial in Joanna Sheen blog and making a rose has never been easier. I used Cheery Lynn rose die instead but technique was same. I still can't believe how easy it was :)

Picture below shows the inside of the card. My cat decided that he wants to sign the card too.  Luckily his paws wasn't muddy this time. He has ruined few cards in past like this. But this has given me a chance to be more creative to find out ways how to cover it :) Even though on this card it would be even nice to have cat paw print on it.

Materials used:
Mo's Digital Pencil - Bunches
Coloring: Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Pergamano white gel pen

Papers: Super Scrap - Freebies backgrounds 23;
White and burgundy papers from my stash.
Cheery Linn Designs - Medium Rose; Spellbinders Nestabilites - Standard Circles Larges and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Punches: Martha Stuart - 3 in 1 Classic Butterflies; Martha Stewart Edge Punch - Lace Heart; Heyda - small leafs;
Kort and Godt 15mm Paper Rose with stems - White; Viva Decor Pearl Pen - Ice White and Red; Ranger Stickles - Crystal;
