If Friends Were Flowers

Good evening

Firstly Happy Mother's Day to all the mum's out there, hope everyone has had a good day and been spoilt!

Secondly what has happened to our weather.  Last weekend it was gorgeous with sunshine, but the last few days here in Northumberland have been dull and cold and today I woke to snow!  Good excuse to stay in and craft. 

The card I'm sharing with you is one I made for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  She loves flowers so I thought this LOTV image would be perfect.

The image has been coloured with copic pens and I added stickles to the wings on the butterfly.
