Mothers Day Swing card

Hello friends

I'm still having trouble with the old Internet so I'm doing this post at my Mum's place.

I've just seen that my scenic card last week came in the MMM Top 3!!!! Thank you ladies, what a great start for the new year!!

My card today is again for the  Make My Monday challenge , they are still doing a theme of Nature but this week its Flowers and Leaves.

I made a swing card for a change, in my favourite combo of Pinks and Green, what do you think?

and here is a photo of the front.

I used a single leaf from the Vintage Vogue border, to add on the stems of the daisies.

The butterflies are on 3D pads to add some dimension, and the ribbons are wrapped around the front and back panels and finished with a bow.

Recipe :
Card = SU Whisper White and Calypso Coral
Stamps = SU Upsy Daisy, Vintage Vogue, and Woodware
Inks = Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Adirondack Black
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Ribbon and 3D pads

I cant wait for Monday to come so that I can have Internet access at home again, it's right what they say "you don't miss something till you cant have it!!". Soooooo true.

Anyway, please drop by again when you can, and thanks for looking today.
