(heart) U mum

Crikey I am really rusty when it comes to cardmaking!  I really struggled with this card - especially with an element in the sketch, the bow behind the rectangle! - I initially tried a bow but that sort of didn't quite work so in the end I used wavy pennants!
 Inspiration for this card came from this months challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique - the colours on the plate, the rolled flowers and the theme of 'love you mum' which is great as it is Mothers Day here in Australia next month :)
 and I used the sketch from Retro Sketches #61
materials used - American Crafts cricket card, DCWV 'spring fling' matstack papers and cardstock; MFT mini rolled roses, royal leaves and mini wavy pennants dies; Cuttlebug red tag alpha dies; American Crafts 'giggles' cream thickers; heart chipboard; Kaisercraft pearls
Thanks for looking.
