Mother's Day Cards - Manor House Creations

Hi Everyone,
With Mother's Day almost upon us, I have been inspired to create a couple of cards using some of the gorgeous new 2014 Manor House Creations  paper collections and product.  Click on the Manor House Creations blog link to see all the new product and for your local stockists click on the link at the top of the MHC blog.
Country Estate paper collection

Today is Your Day
As I have said before, I LOVE the ornate frames, they are the perfect size for cardmaking, but are also great to use on LO's.  They come in black and white and can be altered with any medium you have in your stash, like ink, mists, paint, glitter, microbeads, gesso, crackle medium, the possibilities are endless.  Manor House Creations has a gorgeous new range of ornate frames and some new feature frames designed by Nerrida.
 The country roses have been split into 2 flowers to make a open blossom and a rosebud.
 I have altered the feature frame by cutting out one of the hearts, baking with pp and using a foam dot to make it pop. 
MHC Products used:
Paper -  Country Estate Collection - elements
Frames - feature frames - romantique white
Flowers - country roses - lemon

 Thoughts Wandering paper collection
Love You to the Moon and Back
Two of the new paper ranges come with coordinating diecut elements sheets.  I have used the bird from the Country Estate range and the clock from the Thoughts Wandering range to create my 2nd Mother's Day card.

  I have altered the beautiful rosette ornate frame with 2 coordinating glimmer mists.
I have used the new country roses again, but this time in the azure blue shade.
