I Love You Mom!!! with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the 

with the theme this week chosen by the very talented Franz, who chose the theme of 

I Love You Mom

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous
who are offering a $10 voucher to the winner

Believe it or not I actually created this card just before I found out that I had been chosen for the Wild Rose Studio Design Team, as I think I am having an addiction to these gorgeous little Bella's. Please pop over and see other gorgeous interpretations of this theme at the main challenge site by our amazing team.
I made a Birthday Card for a Mum

Pale pink card - base layer and contrast
Wild Rose Studio - Bella Papers
Wild Rose Studio - image, Bella with Mum
Wild Rose Studio - sentiment from the Little Labels Collection
Grimsby Crafts - Memory die - Cherish Border
Hobby House - pearls
Martha Stewart heart edge punch
Ribbon, charm and feather from stash

Here is a close up of the image, I have used glossy accents on the balloons and the image is coloured with copics and edges distressed with TH mulled lavender.

As you cannot really see the charm, here is a little close up of that too.
As always, I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work and welcome to my new followers. 

Now I was told the other day by a family member that some lovely ladies use my blog as inspiration for their crafting - how lovely :) thank you ladies,  and do leave me a comment next time you hop over to see me, would love that :)
