For Mum

Hi Everyone,
Well it's almost time for Santa to come! I hope you are all ready ? Today I would like to share with you a card that I have made for my Mum & Sister.
They have both supported me right from the very beginning when I first made a very simple little card, I started off in papercraft by scrapbooking and I soon found that I had heaps of smaller pieces of paper that I didn't know what to do with ....... So I made a little card , no image just sentiments and they both thought how great it was, I never even knew that there was a whole world out there of Blogging and images and all the wonderful people that will help you along the way. I am so lucky that I looked into this world and have made so many great friends.
I just wanted to let my family know how much it means to me to have there support along this journey, so I have made them this thank you card.
When I saw the Challenge at MDUC this time all of a sudden I knew what I wanted to do. The challenge is a colour combo of Red , Cream and Gold, I don't know about you but sometimes when I see the challenges I struggle to come up with ideas, but not this time.
A close up of the image , I have used copic markers and prisma pencils to colour.
Here I have used Fleur De Lis Square die and gold embossing powder , I think this turned out really well , it looks a bit like old iron work to me.
The gorgeous flowers and branch with the gold embossing.

I would like to enter the MDUC #127 - Colour Combo Red , Gold and Cream.
