A card for mum

In many countries across the world today, notably in the USA, mother's day is being celebrated, so it's no surprise that this is the theme of a few challenges this week. Of course, here in the UK, mother's day was in March (always three weeks before Easter), so I've made a 'mum' card, but it's not specifically for mother's day, just an 'any time' card.

So this is for challenges on Created by hand, Dutch Dare and day 65 on 365 cards (another 365 one ticked off the list!)

This card is also for two challenges on Rosiedee. Firstly, Deanne's challenge 32 was to use peel offs (oh dear ... I had just a few strays left ...) and Rosie's challenge 33 was this sketch:

I used Sakura glaze pens to colour in the peel offs (which had been mounted on to a creamy/yellowy card). The papers are HOTP, except for the stripy background, which was from the inside of an envelope. I didn't have a 'mum' sentiment in blue, so I used a cream one and chalked it (colours match better irl than on here).

Tanda Teaser 96 (yes, I know it's late!) is 'yellow and blue', so this is OK for that (although there's no stamping in sight - actually, colouring the peel offs and cutting took me longer than it would have done to stamp something similar).
It's also good for CBCC096 'cafe culture' and for DCM's 'mum's the word'.
