Mother's day competition entry

First I would like to say thanks for all the lovely comments you have been leaving about my cards, I appreciate it!

Here is the card I made for a competition on the Crafts Beautiful forum which was to make a card using at least three things from the Lets Make Cards kit. You could use other stash but it couldn't be a card that was in the magazine.

I used the gorgeous ribbon and chipboard sentiments that were in the LMC kit this month and are clearly by Junkitz, and I combined this with some Junkitz paper I had that went really well. I also used the "for my Mum" from the kit, and the sequin flowers to which I added gems, and I used the vellum packaging which I stitched onto the card, the backing paper was stitched on too, not very well though.

I stamped the flowers using a Stampendous Perfectly Clear set called Retro Flower Border. I used Marvy Wet look pens again to colour the stamps and then heat embossed with clear powder.

Inside the the love tag (which I cut from card that matched the LMC card blank, using a wooden Accucut die and my Zipemate as the Wizard cut the fold too - it is too fierce), I cut some LMC pretty paper and added another printed sentiment from the kit. I added a love tag using my Making Memories Ribbon tagger.

I didn't win the competition!
