The DCM little extra challenge is for a card that follows a recipe. Two buttons, one ribbon and a 'spoonful' of flowers.....!
One of the two Mother's Day cards I made achieves that formula....if hand painted flowers count!
I drew and painted the bluebells with help from a wild flowers book. There are two buttons (K&Co) and one ribbon (ric-rac, hope that counts!). The letters are by Making Memories, the blue paper by DCWV and the matting hand-made paper from Lakeland.
Here is the card I made for my Mum, which uses a stamp by Hero Arts, flowers painted with Twinkling H2Os and highlighted with glitter Mother's Day greeting from Anita's stamp and ribbons by Fancy Pants. The zig zags are peel-offs by Anita's. (I am not too proud to use peel-offs!). I stamped a butterfly (Artefacts) onto acetate which is a nice touch because you can bend the wings upwards.
Both cards are fairly traditional but the two ladies are both 75 so they prefer this type of card. Tilda's and Hanna's are not for them!
