A Card for Mum, and a few challenges...

Good morning, just a quick post today to share a card I made for my MIL's Birthday...
Bit different for me this one... NO colouring (well just a teeny bit)
The photo is a bit blurry...sorry!! I didnt have time to retake it before we delivered it yesterday!

Papers are a mix of MME and pink paisley...
The text paper was a free download from melstampz
The sentiment was a free download from my lovely spy friend Marit (in joke)
The Butterflys are Hero Arts (Bought due to fab inspiration from the lovely Deirdre
The 'Mum' is handdrawn, as are the flower stems...
flowers are punched and shaped, and a gem added to the centre...
few more gems, and a bit of edge doodling, and thats it!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges...
Dream Valley Challenges - Things with wings
 Colour Create - Pink/Black and White
Papercrafting Journey - use a Freebie
Papertake Weekly - Dimension

Thanks for looking!!
