Scrapville February Card Sketch Challenge

This is the first challenge that i have taken part in this new & awesome Aussie blog. Janet is the owner of "Scrapville", a shop front business for scrapbooking, cardmaking & papercraft. My gorgeous friend Melinda Spinks is on the design team for Scrapville & she introduced me to the fun & games.

I have taken part in the February Card Sketch Challenge which was designed by Melinda as well as a scrapbook layout. This is both of the fab sketches;

So i decided to do the card sketch and this is what i came up with;

I have used white & blue linen cardstock,  Pocket Full of Posies Stack pp, Prima flowers, Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch & Stylized Flowers CB embossing folder.
I have made my card for my Mum, although she passed a year ago, she may not be with us physically but i know that she is still around me and i will be putting it on her memorial over in Dad's garden on Sunday along with a gift. I will never stop doing this & helps me get through these tough days.
I guess it will seem weird doing a Mother's Day card in Australia as they celebrate it a different time of year to us in England, hope this is ok!!!

Thankyou for this wonderful challenge.
