Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Wednesday the 13th was my Mom's birthday, and just have to say I love that woman, LOL!!  She is about a perfect of a Mom that there is and I'm so lucky for having her as mine.  I sent her a card (of course handmade) and a gift certificate but the fun thing is she'll be here next weekend so we'll go shopping and have some play time together.  I haven't seen her in so long, I really do miss her.
Here is her card. I used Tilda. I can't believe how long it's been since I've inked up a Tilda...a very long time, too long of a time!
I know, I know, my picture taking skills are seriously lacking! But oh well, I don't see it changing any time soon.  If you can see with this horrible picture, I did add clouds. Another thing I haven't done in a long time!  The flowers are WOC (of course) the paper and ribbon are MFT (oh my, one of my fav stores!!!).  I'm thinking something is missing with this card, but just can't put my finger on it....I'm sure it will pop out at me at some point. 
Now here comes the shocker! I'm going to enter this in the following challenges (I know! it's been sooooo long, and I'm soooo excited!)
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge:  Tilda in a Dress
Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  Birthday Theme
Midweek Magnolias:  Birthday Theme
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Tilda Challenge:  Ribbon or Trim

So wish me luck. Happy St. Patricks Day everyone! Erin Go Bragh!
