Thinking of you

Wow, two cards in one week! Shocking for me as it usually takes me a week to finish one lol! I made a card for my mom as she has been having a rough time lately, feeling poorly and having to go back to the hospital for more tests. I thought I would make a card to cheer her up a little and send some hugs :)

The image is one of the Humphrey's Corner Everyday Collection decoupage kit. This is the first one I made up and thought I really needed to do something with it as it's so cute! I used Back to Basics papers from Dovecraft for the panels as I thought they went well with the image. The lilac backing card is slightly shiny but you can't tell from the crappy photo lol! The sentiment is from a Forever Friends decoupage kit but not sure which one. I added white flowers and curled the stems, a method stolen  borrowed from the lovely Kate on Facebook.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

Allsortschallenge - 5 flowers
Cutecardthursday - Animal crackers
