I printed off the lilac striped backing paper and mounted this onto dark purple card and added a faux stitched border using a white gel pen. I also printed off two different backing papers featuring the roses over text and also over musical scores, a sheet of the decoupage roses and the alphabet.
The other papers were matted onto pieces of pale lilac card stock from my scrap box as were the letters and there was enough of the lilac card fro me to punch a fancy border for the alphabets to be stuck to. The topper was a freebie with a magazine but had a lovely feminine feel to it and the butterflies are reflected in the die cut butterfly I added, which was just sitting on my craft table as a left over from another project. I added two types of Organza ribbon one a lovely wide lilac check, I bought this last summer and have never used it and the polka dot ribbon has been in my stash for nearly two years. Behind the topper I added some purple net that was recycled from a bag that held fruit - I love recycling these fruit nets and have been known on a couple of occasions to but fruit because of the colour of the net - I hasten to add that so far I haven't ever bought a fruit I don't actually eat just t get a pretty colour net though and all the fruit I buy does get eaten by myself or hubby so does contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
I used the remainder of the text and music papers to line the inside of the card. I lost my mum a few years ago but colleagues at work often ask me to make a card fro them to give to their mum's so next time someone asks all I need do is add a suitable verse to the inside and they have their card.
I am entering this into the following challenges.
