Mothers day card with cheerful colors



Made this cute mothers day card today..
Experimenting with the placement of letter..which one looks better?

BTW the letters here are recycled..I cut the letters from a brown mushroom bag :). The yellow paper is also recycled from an advertisement brochure..


 For this card, I used Retro Sketches #9 by Kasia Curry

sending to the following challenges

  1. Oooh...such a sweet creation! Love the beautiful quilling set against the lovely background paper.
    I love the placement of the word "mum" like a banner...maybe add some twine to make it a banner?

    Thanks for playing along with my guest Sonia's challenge! :)
