Mother's Day

I've made a card and a wreath for my friend, Tess the dog, to give to her mum.  First up is the card:

The card is made from a bird house blank to which I added lots of Chantilly Olive crushed Candi with a dot of Stickles glitter glue in the centre of each.  I used the Printer's Blocks stamps and Dusty Concord Distress Ink to create the 'mum' sentiment.

Here's a closer look of Tess peeping through the aperture:

The flowers round the aperture were part of the Bohemian Wreath kit.  There's enough flowers in a kit to make 2 wreaths but I like lots of layers on my flowers and used almost all of the flowers on this wreath. I did have a few spare though and so used them on this card. 

Here is a picture of the wreath:

In real life the colours are more like the close ups of the blooms below:

It doesn't show up too well on the photos but the finished wreath is shimmery and sparkly - I sprayed it with silver Spray and Sparkle.
