Out of comfort zone

Ok Ok,... so many moons ago, this would have been very me... but not now... I found this card really hard and against the grain so to speak.. I deliberately did not do a painted or copic'd image as I know 'mum' loves deco, and as she sees nearly all my cards, I wanted to do something a tad different.. re the card shape. (and I not show her the first one of these I done for daughter) So... please dont hold this against me... but a totally different card for me... (also I needed to put a card in for a challenge too) and this fitted....(for those of you that don't know, we adopted each other about 8 years ago, I used to do a bit of light cleaning for her, as she had just come out of hospital and her daughter was a friend of a friend)... now she is a Mum to me, and I think I am her 2nd daughter.. I love the lady to bits... and feel I was very lucky to have found her.

look in tomorrow as I will be 'back to normal'... cos I got the most adorable image copic'd up.. from a new source !!!! and I cant wait to show you all... erm... need to build the card around the image now. ! lol
so much for .. I will pick the papers first lol... :)

Lovely card and so not you any more! Has the challenge anything to do with butterflies by any chance? Not posted the one I've entered if it is (yep, I've entered - lol!). I'm gonna be a good girl and wait, even though it'll be a fortnight after the event I made it for - lol!

Oh I love this card. It is so very soft and lady-like (elegant). It sounds like a very special relationship and you're blessed to have found one another.
