Mum......Forever Special!

Good morning!

Hope you have enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend and all the wedding celebrations! Back to work for me today, boo hoo! Anyway, I'm here with a card I made for my Mum's birthday which is coming up later this month..... I'm organised for once, yay!! She doesn't like Tilda very much (?!!!!) so I chose one of the gorgeous accessory stamps released recently by Magnolia as she does like gardening!

As you can see the card is very 3-D and I added more of the roses I love to tear and make for lots of dimension!

I must point out that the tulips in the image have been paper pieced.... it might be a little hard to tell but I promise you I did it and if you don't believe me then zoom in for a closer inspection, lol! The gorgeous papers in this one are new from Kay&Co and they're right up my street, all vintagey ;o) And you'll also notice another appearance for my beloved satin leaf ribbon, ooh I do love it so much!! The lace is from WOC and the leaves are cut with a Sizzix die, plus I added in some faux stitching to some of the edges..... not much more to add that you won't already know about, hee hee!!

I have a long list of challenges to enter with this card so here goes:
