Fred She Said Challenge

Easter's early this year, so that means Mother's Day is likely to be too here in the UK, although I'm not sure of the date yet. Never mind. March is always a busy month for family cards, so I used the Fred She Said challenge to make a card for my mum.



The challenge was to use the FSS Challenge Blog as inspiration, and of course, to use an FSS image somewhere on the card. Well, I love the colours on the blog, so I went with those. The image is an FSS freebie, which I've coloured with Promarkers. The backing paper is one I put together on Photoshop Essentials a while ago (I said I love the colourscheme) and the mat, label and flowers were all cut using various Spellbinders dies in my Wizard. The sentiment is handwritten with Sakura Silver pen, and the butterfly embellishment is from the local 99p shop. (Wonderful place, but you've got to check regularly because stock comes and goes.) The flowers were coloured with the same Promarkers as those in the image.
