Stampacular Sunday Challenge No. 5

A friend asked me make a card for her mum and I realised it would also work nicely for this week's challenge, which is to make a card for a mum.

The image is Stampin' Up! from the set "A Little Bit of Happiness" which is a Level 1 Hostess Gift and I've coloured it with SU Watercolour Crayons in Mellow Moss; Barely Banana; Pretty in Pink; Pale Plum and Perfect Plum.  The cardstock is matching SU in Mellow Moss & Pretty in Pink & the background papers & mum sentiment are from a FunkyHand CD.  The ribbon which you can just see under the sentiment & the flower are from my stash.

I apologise for the bad photo, I really need to sort out my picture taking, at the moment I'm doing it on my iPhone cos it's so easy to then post it onto my computer, but I've not been happy with the quality for a while, so I may need a re-think!
