Tent Card for Mother's Day

Made this card for my Mum using Dena'a tutorial over on Just Magnolia
It really is a super style of card and very effective. 
I also used this great tutorial from Norma to use my GORGEOUS new pansy border punch from Martha Stewart!  Instead of bordering the edge of circle or oval as shown in the tut, I framed the inside of my aperture. 
Image is a sweet little thing from Sugar Nellie as my Mum is a real doggie lady, coloured with Promarkers, papers are the oh so fab Wisteria from Basic Grey and flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid and pound shop bargains!!

I'm also entering my card in the Stamp Something challenge who are asking for Girly.

Oops better go and get ready for work now!!  Have a great day all and thanks for stopping by!!
