Tilda for my Mum

Afternoon bloggers, hope yours is better than mine, it's the most miserable grey day here and it's been so lovely all week!
Just a quick post from me as I'm off out to a posh dinner dance and wanted to get this up before I get ready. This is my Mother's Day card to my Mum.
I've had this paper (I think it's Junkitz) and this stamp for ages, and as usual never used either. The flowers are Wild Orchid and the ribbon is the seam binding that everyone has gone mad on distressing. The pearls are from my stash and the edges were distressed with a Tim Holtz distresser thingy!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Oldie But A Goodie -Pink, Brown & Blue
Cute Card Thursday - Deb's Sketch
All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge - Pastel With A Touch Of Brown
Simon Says Stamps - Mothers Day
Paper Play - Distressing
Just Magnolia  -Bingo (Gems, Flowers, Ribbon/Lace
Allsorts - Special Lady

Thanks for looking, have a FAB weekend

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
