A card for my Mum

My card today is for my daughter to give to my Mum for her 85th birthday next month. As Mum suffers from AMD and Glaucoma I have made the card tactile for her by using feathers and a tassel!, still she is rather special. The backing papers are from Funky Fairys, and the fan is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD. I printed off the two small sizes and then layered them on top of each other with foam pads before adding a pearl brad and the tassel.

When I started out with my card I tried to make the fan out of patterned paper from Funky Fairys so that I could enter their challenge of 'No Image', but this idea didn't work and so I resorted to the CD. My card does fit the challenge over at Creative Inspirations, however, which is 'Family' this week.
