Birthday Card for Mum

With Mum's birthday coming up I thought I'd better get cracking on a card.  I've tried to make something bright and cheerful to remind her spring is on it's way (well soonish) and also including her favourite colour, green.

The JOFY sets 9 & 14 were the perfect size for this card.  I've masked off some flowers to stamp the background - not something I've ever managed to pull off too well before. The whole thing was looking a bit flat though, not sure the photos show it but I stamped the large flowers again onto scrap, coloured them and decoupaged them onto the main picture to add some texture/dimension.

I'm entering this into the Arty Inklings challenge,  see here.
