Mother's Day Card

This is the card I have made for my MIL. I have mis-stamped? a flower at the bottom but I'm sure she won't mind. I've also noticed I haven't put MUM on it yet so will do that in the morning before we take it to her.

I am entering this card into the A Gem of a Challenge challenge. I have followed the sketch but I have put 2 leaves at the side of the big flower instead of 2 other flowers. I hope this will be allowed. The paper was a K & Co 12" x 12" paper I had and the red card had heart shapes embossed on it. The flowers were Prima.

For my Mother's Day I have bought (from my children) a new set of cutting plates for my Big Shot (I have used my other so much one of them cracked) and I have on pre-order from Craft Den a couple of Tim Holtz new dies. If you pre-order there is a discount. Hop over to the website and see for yourself.
