McMahon Five Designs 'Mother'

I could not resist this sweet image by McMahon Five Designs called Mother:


   I used Prima Madeline DSP (which is 25% off now) and some Prima flowers to frame this lovely lady. She is printed on 89# Cryogen White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.
 I added Prima lace using a Zig-Zag stitch and topped that with Zva Creative Flourishes Pearls. I cut one of the flourishes in half and and used half on each side of the image. The Prima Sugar Bloom in the center is surrounded by Prima Mini Roses.
 I made the bow with Antique White seam binding and added a stick pin from Tracey Brossarts Etsy store-HERE.  The wonderful sentiment is by Create with TLC

 There is a new Challenge Blog- called Frilly and Funky- the first challenge is Anything goes.  I think that my Frilly Vintage Mother fits the challenge.
 Digital Tuesday wants you to use a digi and your favorite colour- and mine is * Pink*
Mark's Finest Papers wants you to use Pink : )  Yep!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, Shelly! This is a fabulous card! I love the detailed coloring! And, the way you framed it, it reminds me of the old-fashioned oval or round frames they would put on someone's face or a family together. Perfect! The lace and ribbon, and flowers are beautiful. I LOVE that pin! It is great, with that big crisp bow! You are a detailed artist! This is exceptional work!

He IS Able!
