Sitting Pretty

Hi everyone

Well, here's the card I said I would post yesterday. Better late than never, eh? I got this stamp for Mother's Day - I think she's gorgeous.

And a side view:

And a bottom view:

What a lot of photos. Excuse the bit of green - it's Suzanne's kitchen wall!

My card recipe:
Image: Magnolia - Dinner Tilda and Dot Muffin
Papers: Imaginisce: All Kinds of Happy - Chatty Cake, Chatty Cake and Pink Frosting with Sprinkles
Cardstock: Coredinations
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts and from stash
Pin and pearls from stash
Silver glitter
Metal Embellishment: Brenda Walton for Kay and Co
Tools: Fiskars Border Punch; Leone Em Fern Punch

I can enter this card for the following challenges:
Just Magnolia is an easel card this week
Cute Card Thursday is Anniversaries or celebrations
Flourishes Timeless Challenges is Borderabilities or Punches

I've put a nice wee round sentiment on the bottom right side since Tilda was photographed. Can you believe I didn't have a suitable "Happy Birthday"? We went to our favourite shop, Craft at Home to buy a wee stamp and ended up buying half the shop! I got a beautiful MS punch - one of those ones that does the edges as well for £22.50. Then we went to Hobbycrap today for a bead box and they wanted £29.99 for the exact same punch. I know they are overpriced but that's ridiculous. Craft at Home is just a wee local busines and Hobbycrap is a nationwide store; they don't need to mark things up as much as that. Beware!

Hope you don't mind me having a moan. Thanks for looking.
