I made this card for a pen friend who was recovering from an operation, but as soon as I made it I realised Mum would be getting an almost identical one next Mothers Day because when I showed it to her she thought it was lovely.

I had an existing card then stitched lots of gold toned beads and white/pearly buttons to some blue felt and then glued the felt to the card. It wasn't very complicated or giant but I was surprised how long it took to make! Lots of fun though.



Hmmn, if I made Mum a different colour scheme button/bead card each Mothers Day, she could frame them together eventually for a kind of button patchwork effect wall display Smiley

That's brilliant, I can see the time spent on it, but it looks great.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I love that you took the time to sew it all down, and not just glue it all on there.  it's a piece that will last for ever! Great work!
