Mother's Day card - Messy goes vintage ... again!

When Phindy showed us her newest image, Spring Breeze, I just knew I had to make a Mother's Day card with it. I remember helping my Mom hanging out laundry on a beautiful crisp spring days just like the one on the picture.

Because of a wonderful soft retro flair of the image I decided to give in and do a vintagey card once again - and this time it actually worked very well. It looks better in real life than it does on the picture - however I tried, I could not get a good photo of it. :(
I used Copics, Prismas and chalks to colour the image. All the papers are distressed with scissors, then Cosmic Shimmer sparkle paint and then glass glitter.

I also did some hand stitching and cut out butterflies from designer paper to use as embellishments. Clothes pegs, twine and twill ribbon are all from my stash.

And remember, there is still time to submit your card to Phindy's first challenge - Anything Goes (as long as you use Phindy image). If you don't own any Phindy images yet you can always pop to her PCP group and grab a freebie to start with. :)

I used Mercy's sketch for the card, I think I might start getting hooked on those! lol

I would like to enter that card into following challenges:
Stampin' for a Weekend - Ribbons and Bows
Stampavie and More - Butterflies
Stamp Something - Something Layered
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
