Birthday card for my special mum

This afternoon's main task was to make a birthday card for my mum - she has been very unwell, so I wanted to make a good effort. Had in mind before I started broadly how I wanted it to look, so it's fortunate that I think it fits in reasonably well with this week's Arty Girlz Challenge #46 - vintage. I'm pretty pleased with how it has turned out so hope she will like it!

My image stamp is by Inkadinkado "Tin Can Mail" and is coloured with Cosmic Shimmers and Twinkling H2O's. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, flowers by Prima, and letters Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet; paper is by Melissa Frances and lace is from my stash.

Need to pop this in the post tomorrow morning, but now it's done i feel I can relax a bit more and hope to try one or two more challenges whilst the light holds!
