some moments are worth holding in your heart forever.

good evening all.you know what??, i actually like this card.lol.i think this may be one of my mums birthday cards.i think the sentiment really sums up the close bond i have with my mum :)
so enough of my mushiness.this card is going into the following challenges:
1.colour create=challenge 51=ivory,duck egg blue and 1 other from the inspiration photo, (i chose green.)
2.sketch saturday=week 116 (another fantastic sketch ladies,i rotated it)
3.allsorts challenge=week 65=paper piercing/paper piecing.(i have done both)
products used are:
bargain papermania papers.
basic grey paper.
brown cotton and needle (yep i have really handstitched the all round the card,lol)
blue and cream lace.
pokey tool.
prima flowers.
brads from stash.
th distress tool.
hero arts sentiment.
whiff of joy mother and child stamp.
promarkers.

most of the image is paper pieced but i have used the following promarkers
skin=blush,sunkissed pink,coral.
hair=cocoa,walnut,black.
stars=ivory,blush.




close up of the sentiment.( i love hero arts sentiments)
and a sideways view.
thanks so much for popping by.
i better go and link this one up.
think it will be a dvd tonight as we have finished watching the "v",need to get some more episodes done now :)
have a great evening.
