Mothers Day Cards

Second time lucky, my mothers day cards are done!

My starting point is one of my favourites, the monthly challenge from Scrapbook Boutique:

 I love pink and green together (and purple with green for that matter), I think the green means it still looks sweet without being too overwhelmingly girly.

And speaking of all things sweet but not overwhelmingly girly, I have a special guest to introduce to you before you see my cards:

Here's Maddy, my "stylist".  She had so much fun on this photo shoot she has made me promise to let her style all my cards in future!  So any magazine editors out there, bookmark this page and come back in about ten years, by then she will have had plenty of practice!

No prizes for guessing what that iced butterfly biscuit reminded me of!

I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.
