My Lovely Friends,

Someone special

Hi guys, it was my mums Birthday on Monday so I made her a card fitting in with our challenge over at Paper Play which is
Use a stamped image/sentiment plus pins and pearls,
Our fabby sponsor is Simon Says Stamp

I had a change and used my grand circle nesties and scalloped nesties to make this card shape, my mum loves lemons and greens so used those colours too,
both the images are cut out but I've decoupaged the bowl rim and the top flowers again, not that you can see this very well, should have taken a picture  from a different angle! lol

My images are done with my distress re-inkers, and I thought she looked cute with little pearls in her ears,

I added a row of pearls to the pot rim too, the flowers are from WOC and other, 
paper is by Basic Grey,
the gorgeous Spellbinders die cut is called  floral ovals, I added a hint of Distress ink to the edge,

The decoupaged flower heads have a hint of stickles on them too, I used the same papers to cut out two butterflies from my tonic punch and made a trail behind them with the stickles too,
The adorable gorgeous pins were a gift from a lovely friend, thanks hun I love these too,
