springtime flowers for a mum

I seem to be on a roll with LOTV stamps at the moment and this one is perfect for
spring and for sending wishes to any special lady. I used this cutie to send love for mother's day. It's not for my mum or mum in law but my son has decided he would like to raise some money for our local children's hospice and thought asking for donations for greetings cards from those at work may help him make a start.I have put together a mixed box and thought as many of his colleagues are male there may be the need for at least one mother's day card this week.

I first made this style of card at Christmas and love the stunning effect it gives, the papers are freebies from birds.com and I love the soft pastel colours. The edges are a Martha Stewart border punch. The image and peel-off sentiment are mounted on spellbinders die cut circles all finished off with a hand tied lilac bow.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
