A card and gift for my Mom

It was my Mom's birthday yesterday so I made her this card:

It's based on the sketch over at http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/ so I would like to enter it into their challenge this week and I also based the colour scheme and used butterflies to fit in with the challenge over at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ so I would like to enter it into their challenge too.

I used Echo Park Victoria Gardens papers and stickers, Spun Sugar and Barn Door distress inks, the black lace was given to me by my friend Julie and the butterflies are Papermania chipboard ones.

I also made her a bag:

excuse my rather garish dining room - sorry craft room! - table cover there but I took the photo in a hurry! the pattern and materials were from a kit I received from my quarterly sewing club details of which are here: http://www.daisychaindesigns.co.uk/.

Thanks for looking :)

That's a great bag, I like the style of it, the sort of 'drop-down'section in the middle makes it very smart and the fastening is neat too. Well done you! Hope your Mum loves it :) xx
