My first DT card for OSAAT.

Well good morning everyone.  I am very excited to be bringing you my first Design Team card for OSAAT challenge blog today. Our sponsor this week is

So head on over and take a look at their fab products.

The theme for my card this week is Mother's day,  all of the design team have done something different this week as it is part of a collaboration with all the artists from providing an image for the challenge.  Pop over to and take a look at all of their fabulous creations.

So here is what you have been waiting for, my card!!

I have had to create a box as well as the card as the flowers were too big to fit in an envelope!!

The backing papers are from Papermanias Aqua paper pack and I have matted and layered with lilac and yellow card/paper.  I have use a fiskars border punch down the side of one of the layers.

Box lid! the papers are from the same set as the card.  The mothers day sentiment was free with a magazine a couple of years ago, but I can't remember which one!

and I have printed it out on the computer, then die cut it out using a Nellie snellen multiframe die, inked around the edge in purple and added pearl gems to decorate.

The digi image is friom Dezinaworlds one of the designers at and it is called 'Spring girl'.  I have coloured her withpro markers and added a couple of mini gems to her coat as buttons.

the flowers are all from Wild Orchid crafts and the leaves have been punch out using a small woodware leaf punch.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
                             'spring has sprung'
                                 'for a special lady'
Well there it is.  I hope you like it.
