Birthday Card For My Mother And DT Card For Stampin for the Weekend

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all well and had a good week. I had a very busy, but good week.
Today is time for a new Stampin for the Weekend Challenge. It was my turn to pick the theme and I decided on bingo!
Now for those of you who don’t know how this works, it’s a lot like the game bingo. You choose three blocks, Horizontally, Vertically or Diagonally.
Example: Ribbons/Bows - Pearls - Pink,
Pearls - Lace - Polkadots,
Flowers - Lace - Pink.
As long as you use three in a straight line, you can use it and don’t forget to tell us in your post which combination you decided on!

Our sponsor for this fortnight is In2Stamp who is offering the winner a 10 euro give voucher.
It was my mother’s Birthday on the 22nd (Wednesday) so I decided to used the theme to make her a beautiful birthday card.
I have used this paper for a few cards before, but it never gets old, I just love it. Fitted with some lace and a doily work wonders!
This is a Whiff Of Joy stamp called: Shy Willow that I used for the first time and I coloured her with the following Copics:
E37, E35 and E33 - For her hair 
R20, R21 and E00 - For her skin
V06 and V04 - For the dark purple on her dress.
V04 and V01 - For the light purple on her dress.
RV13, RV11 and RV10 - For the pink on her dress.
G14 and G12 - For the green on her dress.
R29 and R27 - for the red on her dress.
W3 - For a shadow around the stamp.
I also added a few hearts that came out when I punched the heart pattern for the back paper.
I used some flowers I brought from Wild Orchid Crafts.
In the top right corner I stuck a piece of lace with a glittery ribbon.
I also cut out a few cupcakes from the paper and glued them on top of the others, to give it more depth.
For the inside I also made a heart scolloped border.
And a few hearts!
