A Mother's Day card for a visually impaired mum

My own Mother has been gone a long time but I still make a Mother's day card for my D MIL every year. It is a little harder now as she is rapidly losing her sight. I have made this card as tactile as possible.


The image is a pre -printed one from a local craft shop and i used promarkers to colour it.
The DP's are Craftwork Cards and I really love the blue glittered leaves!
I used a DO border punch on the pink strip.
The three heart embellishments are from Artoz
The sentiment is DO
The brads are from my stash
The letters M U M were cut on my eCraft
