In The Pink Challenge #89 For A Special Lady

 Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at In The Pink. This fortnight we are asking you to make a project for a special lady and with that in mind I made my mum a Mother's Day card. My mum, like me, loves her bright colours, so I went for a bright pink mixed up with a paler pink.

I used a cute image from Lacy Sunshine, that I had previously coloured for a Lacy Sunshine challenge when I was on the DT, but used the wrong colours for the actual challenge inspiration! I knew she would come in handy again sometime!

This card is also for
