DCM - A Trio of Welsh Barbers

With a cryptic clue.
Which, as I discovered to my embarrassment, when I laid it on the team, is only really possible to understand if you live in the UK. And even better, are Welsh.
So... a trio of Welsh Barbers means that on your card you need to have 3 die cuts!
( Dai is a common Welsh nickname for David and as there are a lot of Dai's around they are known by their jobs so a Welsh barber would be known as Dai Cuts. I'll get my coat.)

My three die cuts were - Large daisy blooms and medium flower blooms both cut from felt and the 'MUM' letters cut from chipboard.
The frame was handcut from some card mum gave me a while back and the background paper was a freebie from a magazine that's been lurking in my bits and bobs box. For those that know me, I HATE PEEL OFFS but as it was for my mum and she uses them quite a lot I forced myself LOL! I inked my base white hammered card with purple ink. layered up the background and border paper then doodled round the edge. The Chipboard letters were base painted with white acrylic paint then when dry painted over with lilac H2O looky likey paints. Topped that of with a couple of layers of clear embossing to gloss and seal. These were then mounted onto some irridescent card. The felt flowers and the letters I cheated with a little, as these came in kits from the fabulous Bubbly Funk.
