A card for Mum and some challenges!

This card is for my dear Mum for Mothers Day.
(I should really say Mam as I'm from Ooop Noooorth!)

I've kept it fairly simple, the only tricky bit was cutting the circle aperture.

My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow papers

Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft
Gems and ribbon from stash
Image Rosie Posie from Lili of the Valley

I cut the aperture from the card stock first then the papers from MME, was a little tricky, but so happy with the outcome! Distressed the outside and around the image with my Queue Chalk Ink Pads. Image coloured with Distress Inks.
I'm entering this into a few challenge 
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Spring is in the Air - Well Mothers Day is in the Spring and I think the colours fit perfectly!
Stamp Something - CUTE! - This little girl form Lili of the Valley is extremely cute! So sweet!
Crafty Catz - Buttons and Bows - Not sure if I'l get away with the tiny bow I made!! Fingers crossed!!

Also entering this card (along with some emailed ones) for the Paper Romance DT Call!
