My mums card

Hello all I hope you are all enjoying another long bank holiday weekend, I could get quite used to this and along with the lovely weather I had an added bonus of my Birthday yesterday. Thanks for all the lovely cards I  received I will show the hand made ones later in the week.
This is the card I made for my Mum for Mothers day but as usual I gave it away before taking a photo, I seem to be doing that a lot lately...... but at least I could get this one back to take a piccie for you.

 I was really pleased with the finished card. The peach flower we made in a much bigger in a class with Jane Gill but I cut all the sizes down and came out with a smaller/tiddly version, using scalloped circles cut up and wound round tweezers to curl and then stuck to daisy petals. The cream flowers were from just two layers of a Woodware punch I am not sure what it was called sorry! the leaves are various Leone em punches and the words are sizzix Wingo Zingo. Oh and I nearly forgot the background edge Martha Stewart arches all round the page.
Here is a closer view of the flowers. Its a bit windy here today down in the south but the sun is still shining. Enjoy you day and happy crafting x
