Mothers day or Valentines?



Hi me again!! Post post post today!!
I started making this last night & have finished sticking the flowers on today. I'm having trouble deciding on what type of card to make it though. Initially it was going to be Valentines (forever yours sentiment) but now I think it would actually make a rather nice Mothers Day (just for you mum) card...hmmm decisions!
Anyways whilst I'm deciding here it is to be entered into 2 challenges.

Sketch Saturday.........the sketch!
I found this sketch quite easy to work with & really enjoyed it.

SophistiCat Challenge Blog..........fancy borders
I have used my martha stewart border punch all the way around. I have then used chalks to highlight the embossed flowers.

The FF bear I cut out from some FF papers I didnt colour it I'm not that good!!!
The oval shape die cuts are from Susie's shop Die Cut Dreams
The papers are Forever Friends.

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
