One Stitch at a Time Challenge 55

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're showing off the monthly collaboration for April - that's the set of files you'll get FREE if you spend $10 in the Stitchy shop. How's that for a bargain? And the theme for the collaboration is Mothers and Babies!

And, we're sponsored by


I got to play with Panda Bear's paper pack this week, and chose two of the designs to make a Mother's Day card.
Aren't those papers just gorgeous?! And there are some lovely baby-themed papers as well as some that could be used for all sorts of occasions in the set too.

I decided to show off the papers by not using an image, and instead digitally created a sentiment and cut it with my nesties. I inked around the edge with Versacolor ink in Burgundy and finished it with some white ribbon.

The flowers were all made from punched shapes. I recently bought Susan Tierny Cockburn's book 'Paper Bouquet' and the flowers were inspired by that. (I can't follow many of her designs exactly because of limited punches!) The white flowers are edged with Versacolor ink in either Burgundy or Ash rose, and the burgundy flowers were coloured with Promarkers. Although the flowers feel pretty robust due to the shaping and layers, I sprayed them all with some Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine Irridescent to give them a bit more rigidity so they'll hopefully survive a trip through the post.

The paper is also edged with Burgundy ink, and I finished with some lace.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion where they want us to show our appreciation. (What else is Mothering Sunday all about?)
Anything Goes Challenge where they want us to make our own embellishments. (I made the flowers.)
Creative Craft Challenges where they want us to use lace,
Simon Says Stamp were they want Mother's Day,
For Fun Challenges where they want flowers and a sentiment,
Creative Card Crew where they don't want any stamps,
Crafty Emma who want us to use die cuts (Eyelet Nestibility used for matting).
Two Sisters who want us to make our own embellishments (the flowers are all made from punched shapes)
Allsorts who want something made for 'a special lady'.
