For a wonderful mum

Good Morning everyone Happy Friday, What happened to the lovely weather. Fingers crossed it comes back for the next couple of weeks while the children are off school.
I would like to share this card with you today, I made it following the sketch over at the Sugarbowl, its the second one using the sketch, unfortunately I made the first without reading the rest of the theme, which was Pink and I had made a boys, blue card. So here's my very pink card instead.
I decided to try a shaped easel card after being inspired by my very talented blogging buddy Donna. Why not pop over and check out her cards and creations.
 Before you go I'd like to tell you about this card. I used XL frames - frilly #2 - from Go Kreate to make the base easel card, then various sizes of Nesties - Labels 8 for the mats and layers. 

I chose this Adorables image by Sugar Nellie, this is the first time I have used this one and I think I have a new favourite. She is so pretty and easily coloured using Copics.

This is the inside or base of card, I repeated the design from the sketch, using the same papers, ribbon and lace as the front. The papers are from Papermania - Summer Bloom, yes I'm still using them, they're still my faves.

Here's a side view so you can see the easel design better. I used flowers from Wild Orchid and the ribbon and lace are from stash. I had already made a card for my mum for Sunday, but think I'll give her this instead.
I am entering it into these challenges;
