Country Lady

Hi Folks!
I just wanted to share the card I have made for my Mum for Mother's Day with you! It's OK, my Mum doesn't like computers so there is no chance of her spotting this! I finished it this afternoon and for once I'm really pleased with how the finished result looks!! The stamp is an old one from my Penny Black collection called Country Lady, another one that is great for lots of different occasions! I have to confess the papers were a recent purchase at Make It in Farnborough. They are Princess fairytale by Dovecraft & were a bargain and so it seemed rude to leave them there - even though I probably have enough paper to keep me going for years!! 
I based my card on the CASE it challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week, I've used quite a lots of embellishments for me, including a long neglected butterfly punch! This definitely says Spring and better weather to me - can't be much worse than the horizontal rain and wind earlier!!
Thanks for looking and for any comments you might leave.
