My mum loves green, and I love swirls so I put the two together and came up with this:
The paper is from the Henbury Lane pack that I have been using a lot lately and I have backed it onto some jade green card.
I love this sketch (and have no idea where I saw it first), but it is one that I always end up going back to time and time again.
I didn't really have any stamped images that would have been a little more appropriate, ie bears with flowers (used that one the other week for a thank you card for my mum), so went for one, that she will recognised as our cat 'May' can often be found in the garden sitting on top of some empty pots we have.
Not sure what the image is or where it came from, no doubt a freebie, but I have coloured it in with promarkers and added some glossy accents to the butterfly, red heart and flower heads. It is the first time I have used this product and I love it! I think that the pearls give it a finishing touch.
