Birthday card for Mom

So, having all my new toys and plenty of time over the holiday period, I've been playing with my Cuttlebug and trying out my new Nesties. It's Mom's 86th birthday in three days time and although she doesn't keep any of the cards I create for her I hope she appreciates what has gone into them. This card is loosely based on the sketch for the MSE challenge and I think it's quite pretty. I don't think the proportions are right, and I prefer square cards at the moment, but as I've got quite a few more cards to make in the next few weeks I'll be able to experiment.

This is a 5" x 7" card and I've used a Penny Black stamp which I've had for quite a few years. The mats are Core'dinations Gemstones card and I've used the Swiss Dots and Divine Swirl embossing folders. The spotty paper I've had hanging around for a very long time and the ribbon came off something I don't remember and got stashed away! I'm still practising with watercolouring and probably have a long way to go yet!
