Something for Mum

Good morning. Before I show my project to you I would just like to say a big thank you to Kath for the wonderful inspiration. I saw that Kath had made a plaque like this at her demo she had recently - I wish I had been there in person - I saw it on Kath's blog and I knew straight away that I wanted to make one too.
So this is my entry for the Penny Black challenge this week - Pink, Green & Yellow
although my yellow looks more cream/lemon - so hope this counts!!!

I started by cutting the basic shapes from a cereal packet using my Nestie Labels and then spritzed them with Cosmic Shimmer Misters - Mallow Blush & Golden Mint and then used Distress Inks over the top and round the edges. The reverse has been covered with the plaid DP in Pink, Green & Lemon from the BG Sugar Rush collection. I stamped the Penny Black 3865K Gossamer flower stamp onto the Lemon & Green spotty DP from the BG Sugar Rush collection - embossed with clear and then cut out. The letters are Papermania cardstock stickers.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
SCSC - 'Mother'
OSCC - 'Wall Hanging'
ASFOS- 'Spring Time'

Thanks for popping over.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
