More Mother's Day

 Hello again!

This is my second Mother's day card.  I decided in the end that the yellow card I had was too bright and didn't look right and I didn't have many yellow background papers either so I went with green.

This is another pattern from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine stitched using threads from my stash.  I've used plain green card for the base layer and polka dot paper from First Edition's Stocking Filler pack.


I would like to enter this card into the follwing challenges:

My only problem now is who gets which card, there is one for my Mum and one for my Mother-in-Law.  I had originally planned the yellow roses for my Mum as she likes them but I think I prefer the blue card now they're both made up!  Have a look here and let me know what you think!
