My Lovely Friends,

For you mum,

Hi Guys,
Earlier this week I made this for my mum for mothers day, so thought I'd put it on here and show you lol, 
I've seen a few of these book cards in blog land lately and thought I'd have a go, 
make a brew I've a few pictures lol!
My mum loves pale colours and daffodils, well I had no stamp with just Daffs so I masked tilda with tulips on to a fence which had a few peeking out,
I've coloured these with copics and edges the are distressed with Antique Linen Distress ink,
The paper is from the Tim Holtz shabby pad and my edges are sewn,
I did the inside in the book style and on the left is a pocket for a removable tag on which I used the distress ink again and with the same colour did a border using the same colour with a Stempelglede grunge stamp,
I put a few words in the middle,
I did the same frame effect on the top and around the book,
Here's a close up of the book, I edged the top edges with a Martha Stewart border punch, then I distressed it with Vintage photo for a bit of  an aged look,
I hope you can see the frame effect on the card too,

Back to the front,

I used various flowers then took a butterfly button and a pearl button and took off the shanks, ( not easy) I can tell you, they ping all over the place lol, then I  mounted them with the flowers, Magnolia swirl die, and pearl strings
The top left corner has a quickcutz die and some more pearls finish off the card on the card and inside on the MS Butterlflies,
Just Magnolia ~ Anything with extra buttons
Stampin for the weekend ~ For Mothers day
Sarah Hurley ~ Mums the word
Flutter by Wednesdays~ Buttons and Bows
Stampin for the weekend ~ For mum/ mothers day

Edited to add,
Did you notice my buttons are missing on my first picture, my camera's been playing up so I was testing it only I hadn't put them on then,
know what's worse, I've only just realised, lol

It's really cold and raining now here,
where did spring go lol !!!!
See you soon,
Have a lovely day
Love and hugs Liz xx
