Happy Birthday Card for My Mother

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend.
I promised to post the card I made for my mother’s birthday and here it is.

I decided to make a red card since red is one of my mother’s favourite colours.
I’ve used a Magnolia that a friend stamped for me long ago and colored her with the following Copics:
E37, E35, E33 and E53 - for her hair
E00, E21 and R20 - for the skin 
R27 and R29 - for the red on her clothes 
Y11 and Y00 - for the yellow on her clothes 
W3 - for a shadow around the stamp
I also stuck four pearls in each corner of the image.

I’ve stuck some lace with a red ribbon on top, at the bottom part of the card.
I have also put three different size pearls in the bottom right corner and a pearl on the bow.
I put a big and smaller flower in the top left corner and also three different pearls.

Here I have put a bunch of flowers, with pins to finish it off.
I would also like to take part in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts  - Spring - flowers Everywhere!
Lexi's Creations  - Flowers
Stamps R Us - For the Girls
Woodware USA - Anything goes
Dream Valley Challenges - anything goes

I will also post some pictures of my mother’s book mark I made, soon...
Have a blessed week
