A Card for Mum

Good Evening well it is nearly Mother's day. The time of year that we make a special point to show our Mums how much they mean to us.
So with that I have made a card with just the word Mum on. Now this could be a Mother's day card or even a Birthday Card. Hope you like

I have used the letters from the alphabet from polkadoodles colour therpy collection.
Coloured with my Lyra Polycolour Pencils 
 Added a thin wash of Glitter pen over to give a shimmer.
Seam Binding. Embossed the base which card before adding to a pink thin rectangle card.
Gem hearts and pearls complete a simple card.
Hope you like and leave me a comment letting me know if you will be making some Mother's day cards this year.
