I chose to add this challenge to the Digital Tuesday Challenge, which is: 'to make A Card For Mum this could be Mothers Day, birthday or just to say I love you, so this is my challenge to you, it can be a card or other project whatever you feel like creating but must contain at least one digital image.'
I've recently downloaded some vintage images from The Little Grey Bungalow. The images are taken from 1950s sewing patterns and I love them. There is one in particular that reminds me of my mum, who used to sew many of her own (and my) clothes. Mum is a very elegant lady, always well dressed, beautifully made up, and with great poise and presence. This image really brings her to mind:

Papers: Crate Paper, Bazzill
This image was coloured with my Copics, and I'm really pleased with the result. I knocked some white out of the background with some chalk ink in Alabaster, and added a gem, for bling, as an earring. Because this was taken from a sewing pattern, it seemed only right to add some stitching and buttons to complete the feel. Even the ribbon is stitched! I really like this card, particularly as, halfway through, I didn't think it was going to come out well. Just shows, sometimes your mojo just needs to wander a bit!
