Wonderful Mum

It's half term, so the kids have a week off of school.  We are only on day three and I am thinking about my mum all what she had to put up with from myself and my two eldest brothers when we were little.  The "He took my toy" and the "I'm bored".  Sorry mum.  Well anyway..... I wanted to make a card for a mum for either mothers day or a birthday and came up with this.

The design came from this weeks sketch at Papertake Weekly and the colour scheme came from the coffee and cream challenge at Simon Says.  I think it is also perfect for the some one special challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

I am still working with old stash, so I don't know where my patterned paper came from.  I started off with my usual 5x7 inch white card blank (90%  of my cards are that size) and covered it with latte coloured coordinates textured card.  I topped that with a piece of distressed DP which I edged with tea dye distress ink, to this I added bronze card and some more textured card called cream and sugar (I think it is Bazzil cardstock).  I added bronze ribbon, chocolate ribbon at the bottom and backed my Penny Black stamped image onto some more of the latte textured card.  I have distressed all of the edges and coloured them with tea dye.  I wanted a bit of bling to finish so I have added some square chocolate coloured gems.

Maybe I should have called this card Mocha Latte!
