This is a Mother's Day Card that I have wanted to make for a while using a photograph of my mum when she was a child. The papers were a freebie with a magazine a long time ago and I must confess I nearly threw them away because I didn't like them and couldn't think what I would use them for. Anyway, they seemed to look just right with the Sepia photograph! I distressed the edges for a shabby/vintage look.
The lace, corner frames and gardenia flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. My mum likes a bit of bling! so I edged the papers and flowers with stickles. The charm and bow are from stash. The lovely 'Memory Frozen in Time' sentiment came with the papers and is just perfect for this card!
