Mum's the word

I've used a fav of mine, a digi from Pink Petticoat to make this shaped card. I blew the digi up to about 6x6, then cut around it keeping a couple of points at the top to ensure it stayed with the back of the card. I've coloured it using some of the new spring promarkers and some other old favs. The sentiment stamps are from Paula Pascal on the wheel and inside from Kanban as is the small rose stamp. I also took some embroidery thread and wound it around the bobbin and then fixed it with a glue pen along the thread line. This is for the OH Mother for the day and she used to be a very keen sewer, so hope she likes it.
This is what it looks liked opened.

I'd like to enter the card into these challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp challenge -Mother's day/special girl
Crafty pad challenge -Mum's the word
Divas by design challenge- favourite things
Passion for promarkers challenge-for Mum/female relative
Cardmadfairy challenge- Mum's the word

lovely card Lynn.

I have often wondered about getting that digi. I do like it, but have so many others i've not used, I should really use other stuff up...

quite a few challenges there - good luck in them.
