Coffee and Cream for a Fabulous Mum!

Here is a card I made for two challenges:
Whiff of Joy - Coffee and Cream.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Mother's day /Girlie

Sorry I couldn't stop piling on all of the embelishments I love how it turned out, I hope you like it.
I have been really good lately and I am trying to use up old papers that I have in my stash to make room for all the new stock that my friend Tracey is getting in at the moment. Tracey owns my local craft shop Running with Scissors. I go on a saturday to do scrapbooking in the morning which I love doing and meeting up with all of my lovely crafting friends, and recently I haven't been very good at sticking to Tracey's instuctions so have come away with my own little take on the layout as I seem to cut the paper in the wrong place. Sorry Tracey I will try and get it right on Saturday lol! we have such a laugh. In the afternoons most of us stay til late crafting and laughing, the perfect tonic after a week of work.
I have used :
Spotty basil Brown (RWS)
Bo bunny dots Cream (RWS)
Flowers (RWS)
Most of the embellies are also from RWS - Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Disterss Inks, Pearls, Glimmer mist.
Feather was in my stash along with the pearl flower.
Magnolia - New year swirl around the edge of the image.
I have distressed all of the edges with distress inks and made use of my MS butterfly punch and around the corner punch, I am not sure who the sentiment stmp is by as I found it among my old stamps ( it is surprising what you find hidden among paper!) I have used one of the stamps from the WOJ City girls collection, this is the first time I have used this one and I am sure it won't be the last!
Thanks for looking.
