A little something for Mum.

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.I have my ironing to do this morning and then we are out for tea later so need to catch up with things.lol.
So todays share is not a card but a mirror.I got 2 of these heart mirrors from work for £3 each and set to tarting them up a bit for my mum and mil.
Here they are,apologies for naff pics, really hard to take a pic of these without getting my body in the shot.lol.
I am entering my mirrors into the following challenges if i can **please do remove my entry ladies if altered items are not allowed**
1.Oldie but a goodie challenge - Feeling floral (old stash is the butterfly die which i have had well over a year)
2.Everybody Art challenge - Challenge 226 - Butterfly
3.Crafts 4 Eternity challenge - R114 - Marvellous mums
4.Fussy and Fancy challenge - Challenge 84  Flowers

Pic of the original plain mirror,luckily this can be removed and then put back in once you have finished.

Both mirrors together, virtually identical.
Products used are:
Docrafts gorjuss girls paper - neutrals
Lace
Cream ribbon
Pearls
Flowers
Stickles stardsut
Butterfly die - marianne designs
Buttons
