My Time To Craft 'No Design Paper' Challenge

Good morning everyone, well they have said we will get sunshine today but it has yet to arrive! I am anxious to see it and feel it on my skin lol. 

So back to the matter in hand, I am here with my card for the new challenge this week at My Time To Craft which is 'No Designer/Pattern Papers' so inks, stamps etc only. My card was a special order for my mum, her old neighbour turns 90 today and is having a big party and her son requested only 'handmade card & or gift' as she has everything and wants for nothing he thought this was a better present and I have to agree I like this idea. 

I started by cutting the stencil background on my Silhouette which was similar to the pattern on a planter which I also vinyled for her but forgot to take a photo of. I inked this with spun sugar distress ink, I then cut the doily layers and border from a matching set. A couple of little accents and it was done.

Die Cut Stencil - Daisy Flower Overlay #44383 by Elizabeth Mayne
Lace, Ribbon, Slider & Dragonflies - My Stash

Here is the inside, left plain except for a little stencilling in the corner which is actually pink but the weather was so rainy when I took these.

That is all from me, I am off to find a frame for the photo's I showed in yesterdays post plus some other's to make a great grandmother gift for my mum's birthday in a couple of weeks.

Have a great weekend all and please pop by the challenge blog to see the other ladies makes.
