Bunches of Love

A friend at work asked me to make a card for their mum - it got me thinking of how my mom would have loved it. My mom was really crafty - always sewing and patchwork. I didn't take up making cards until towards the end of my chemotherapy and sadly my darling mom died at the beginning of my treatment - I miss her so much. She would have really got involved with me making cards and buying stash - she loved butterflies and I think of all the cards I could have made her for her birthday or mothers day - but it was not to be.
I have used a gorgeous Mo Manning image - used pastel shades - as usual - even if I say it myself- it looks better in real life - more subtle and sparkly!!!
This card can be entered in the following challenges
mosdigitalchallenge - pastel shades
