Vintage Mother's Day Card!

We are now onto our next challenge at Bizzy Becs Challenges and our theme this month is 'vintage'. Now I rarely make vintage creations so this was a real challenge for me but I had lots of fun with it! My card is an easel style card for Mother's Day featuring a sweet little basket of flowers. I cut the basket, flowers and leaves out using a gorgeous die from Marianne Design and inked the edges with distress ink in 'frayed burlap'. The papers behind my basket and my sentiment are cut out using spellbinders dies.

Please join us at Bizzy Becs Challenges this month for our vintage challenge!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door. Challenge #25; happy Mother's Day
Card Crafter's Circle. Challenge #21; Mum's the word
