Mama's 70th Birthday Card

Hi folks!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here's the card I made for my Mum, as promised. I can't believe she's 70! I know it's a bit of a cliche but my Mum is the best Mum in the world. She really is an angel sent down from heaven. The most generous, giving, loving, caring person I know. Completely selfless, always thinking of others. Love you Mama!
I used papers from my We R Memory Keepers 'Tiffany' stack, an EK Success boarder punch and a strip of self adhesive lace. I layered up some Prima flowers and held them together with a jewelled brad. I cut the letters from funky foam using my Cuttlebug 'Fancy Pants' alphabet. I finished off the card with some gem swirls.
I know you can't tell from the picture but this card is quite huge, it's about 10"x7".
My Mum loved it :o)
Ciao for now!

I'll pop this one on to the ASFOS challenge as they are still wanting us to 'Freestyle'. The Creative card Crew want us to 'Punch it'. Cute Card Thursday have asked for 'Flowers' Raise the bar want us to use 'Something Old' I've had the swirls of bling for an absolute age and was saving them for a really special card.

Sandra this is beautiful. The love for your Mum just shines out of it.

My biggest regret is that my own Darling Mum who would have been 79 yesterday (29th), never got one of my cards as I was not doing them when she died 9 years ago. She was my best friend, my rock and I miss her still. She would have loved a handmade creation, as I am sure your own Mum will.

Thanks for sharing such a personal card.
