Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge For MOM

Wonderful Mother 
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me. 
Pat O'Reilly
I thought I would share this lovely Poem with you all before I show you my card for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge For Mom
So this is one of my cards for my Mum or my Mum -in-law not sure which one will get this one.Its a bit had to see with this card, I have actually made it out of cardboard and then covered each piece with Kaiser paper Sweets and matching Kaiser Cardstock, then joined the two pieces together with Ribbon so it ties at the side with tow bows.
Die's that I have used are
Dutch Scallop Square Frame DL 140 ( also the fancy die from the middle)
Japanese Lace and Flourish Frame DL 137 ( just the ferns in the middle)
These are linked to Scrappy-go-Lucky so hop on over and see what other Cheery Lynn Dies are available.

So here is my card, its like a window of flowers,
This is the back of the card
This is the card opened up and I have made little tags to sit in the pocket's which I have then used some Rub-ons on each one,
The versus on the tags,
I have actually glued the flowers onto the ribbon. And for a different effect I have used Cuties B149 and not rolled it up but just left it to use as a border on the top of the pockets.
Its not Mothers Day here until the 13 May so I have a little bit of time to make another card.
Thanks so much for leaving me comments it really makes it all worth while.
Cheers Shelley
