Mother's Day LO

This pic was taken Mother's Day 2011 in front of our home, we had went to Village Haven as we do every year for my MILs gathering and then to her home for desserts.

Since our winter was so long - the blossoms had not bloomed fully yet as they normally would have in front of our home.

I am following the sketch from Sketchy Thursday and a request of AllSorts for paper piecing, and the color scheme at Colour Create Challenge #87 of Red, Cream and Sage Green
I used Colorbok pattern paper and Sizzix Large Doily die (having a problem cutting and releasing all the tiny pieces in the doily but it suited my needs here). The mat for the picture, I distressed using my scissors, and inked the doily and journaling spot.
