For mom - Sketches4All DT Challenge

In this challenge you are to make a card, layout, tag, or other papercraft project where you include banners.  The banners can be any type you wish, just add a banner to your project somehow!!  Please upload your project to the Sketches4All site and the winner gets a fun little RAK from me!!  You may enter as many times as you like!!

I wanted to make a card for my mum this mother's Day.  I am not a card maker, it is not my area, but I am starting to really like working in a 6x6 or 5x5 format for cards, it is like making a mini page without a picture!!

On this card I loved the paper so much that I let it shine, but just adding a few small light touches to brighten up the paper.  I wrapped yarn around the strip and tied a simple knot to hold it together.  I then layered little words about my mum on top of the words "dedicated to the world best mom" then added the punched butterfly to accent it off. I also love the idea of sewing the buttons onto a page, it really finishes it off and gives it a really clean neat appearance.
