Happy Mother's Day card

A very happy Mother's Day to all mothers celebrating this weekend. This is a card I whipped up for my Grandmother.

 Again, as mentioned in previous posts, I'm trying to use up some of my older supplies. I've used one of the scenes and some of the papers from docrafts A4 Decoupage Pack Art Deco Train (PMA 169801) on this card. Dining outside is always a sign of Spring to me; I thought this a perfect image for Mother's Day.

I used Bernard MT condensed font for my sentiment and kept embellishments simple for easy mailing back to the States. The 3D effect on this card is stunning in real life, unfortunately, as is always the case with 3D, a photograph doesn't do it justice.

Supply List
Paper—cardstock, docrafts A4 Decoupage Pack Art Deco Train (PMA 169801), Paper Touch Scrap Dots Pad
Dies—Die-namics rectangle stack
Embellishments—wooden flower, button, gem
Font—Bernard MT condensed
