Mothers Day & Hatpins!

I had started out with the intention of making another Valentine theme card, however, as it started coming together, I wasn't getting that 'Valentine' feel and, as you can see, by the end it became a Mothers Day card (which isn't that far off either!). I also felt that by the rose and ribbon something was missing?! I have seen on a few cards, some kindof hatpins and I have made it a point in the past to look around for some, only to find that they are often too expensive (as a card embellishment goes) or too big! I really thought that the hatpin was the missing element here and so set about making it myself and after a trip down to my local bead shop I am now making my own hatpins - this is my first! - but watch this space...

Here is a close up of the pin, which I found very easy to make and a really effective finishing touch for a card.

For this card I have used Particraft stamp, dp are from Raspberry Road Designs, distress ink pad - vintage photo.
