Letters of the Alphabet...

The challenge over at 'Theme Thursday' this week is 'Letters of the Alphabet'...
'Use one or more letters of the alphabet on your creation this week! Use them on their own or use letters to make up a word!' ................

This fits nicely with the card I have made for my dear Mum for Mother's Day...which here in the UK is on Sunday 2nd March x

The green backing paper is from Raspberry Road designs, and I have to be honest...I'm not sure about the pink paper :0/

The letters are made of thick card, which I have coated in pink acrylic paint and edged with Fuchsia Pink Stazon. I have then doodled some flowers ...a technique taught to me by a wonderfully talented friend Linda...who also designs her own rubber stamps...they are available from here

The flower images are from the 'Doodles for Daniel' range, and have been stamped using Fuchsia Pink Stazon. I have 'dotted the dots' with contrasting colours of Liquid Pearls, then layered the two sizes and secured with brads. The card has been finished with two rows of ribbon x
