A card for Mum

Oh I have so been trying to decide what to do for my mums card for mothers day and I finally made the decision to go with this Sassy girl (you can buy them from Funky kits here). I just love how she's all dressed up but looks like she has no place to go. I was out shopping last week with mum and we went into Roman originals, they had some evening dresses that so reminded me of the race day in my fair lady full length black fitted with a huge black and white bow on the bodice and it was only £35 . Mum asked where I would wear it to as she knows how I so love posh evening dresses, I said at £35 I could wear it to do my cleaning in, she wasn't sure if I was serious or not, but I didn't buy it for those who are interested, but I was tempted.

Anyway thats why I picked this wee Sassy. I colourede her dress in blue my fav and added sparkles of course, well no posh coloured dress is complete without sparkles, I really need to ge out more, it sounds like I have a very sad life lol.
The papers are freebies from Bearly mine and have my favourite flower on dasies, and more sparkle with the irridesent mirri card. The ribbon I think came in a Kanban kit but love the colour and the sparkle too. The sentiment is made up of 3 peel offs a daisy 'mum' and 'love you' which was in a frame but I cut the frame off.
