Happy Birthday Mum

Hi all, what a mixed bag of a Saturday.  We've had rain and sun and clouds and clear.  We managed to head out on our bikes yesterday afternoon for the first time since my operation.  I got about 3/4 of the way to the next village on a flat cycle path and had to turn around and come back!  But still, as one of the big supermarkets says, every little helps I guess! 

Here's today's card:

I have used the First Edition "Desert Blooms" papers.  These are so gorgeous, amazing colours and a lot of pre-sparkled glitter ones too.  I stamped the sentiment using DoCrafts Forever Friends "Hand Script Alphabet"  stamps a one of their mixed sentiment sets.  I used Stampin' Up punches for the flowers and the scalloped edge.  The gems and flower button are from Sonas Made.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Keep smiling
