Mothers for SUO

This week for SUO, our challenge is all about Mothers.  I've had this lovely stamp set waiting to be used so this week I seized the opportunity!!!  My Mum really LOVES crosswords and Scrabble, so the choice of the dictionary is perfect for her!

I haven't made a vintage sort of card for quite a while and I really enjoyed making this card for Mum.  As well as using Sweet Laughter, I've also used Petite Petals, Dictionary background stamp set, and Gorgeous Grunge.

My colours were Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Cherry Cobbler, along with some thick Old Olive bakers twine.  The little petite petals are stamped onto natural filter paper in a bunch of five sheets of paper to give them some volume and texture.   I used some brad bases to fix the filter paper together and then a pearl in the centre of the brad.
Now to send it off to Mum for Mothers Day!
