Christmas Flowers for Mum

I was asked to make 10 boxed trifold cards for an order but unfortunately due to my stay in hosp I only managed to get 3 made. This is one for a special Mum - and aren't all Mum's special - using my spellbinders layered Poinsettia die. I have used more contempory colours for this one - pale pinks and bluey greens - I love the colour of it. The papers and music paper are all Raspberry Road downloads. I used lots of stickles glitter glue and some lovely white pearly beads for the centers of the flowers. Sentiments made on the computer and ribbon from my stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges
ABC Challenge - anything Christmas
Crafting for all Seasons - Anything goes
Crafts and Me - Christmas
Friendship's garden - no stamped images + Christmas
Tuesday throwdown - For someone special
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Christmas wishes
