A special card for a special Mum!

I bought this beautiful die at a recent craft fair and saw some of the stunning cards created using it.  I found a wonderful old photo of my mum taken as a very young girl and decided to photocopy it and include it in a card.  The above card is the end result!  The die is the Marianne Creatables LR0236 and I used the outer die on the fold of some pearlescent card to create the backing card.  I used the lacy die twice in a contrasting pearlescent cream card and attached them to the base card.  I then used the third die in the set to cut out the photo and attached it to the centre of the top part of the card.  I used a computer generated message to attach to the bottom part of the card and then finished the whole card off with a flower and some foliage plus a little butterfly from a Stampin' Up die.  I hope you and my mum like this card.  Thanks for looking!
