I have made my Mum her Mother's day card using one of the stunning images from 
Pion 'Paris Flea Market'

For the shape of my card I have used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design 
'Summer Time' papers.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Spellbinders floral oval and heart lattice, Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag and peony leaves.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a closer look at my floral arrangements.
I love the new selection of lilies.
I hung the filigree heart charm with natural hemp twine and placed it underneath my arrangement.

A closer look at the image.
I stamped either side of the image using an IndigoBlu stamp and sprinkled a little shabby white embossing enamel around the inside.
I adhered a length of 3mm white pearl bead string around the outside of the image and used glamour dust to add sparkle to the beautiful lady's head scarf and rose.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the smallest of a GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.

I hope you like my card?
