Because You're Wonderful

Charisma Cardz Challenge #10 this week is to make a mother's day card but as Mother's Day was back in March for us here in the UK, I opted to make a card that would be suitable for my mum or mother-in-law instead with this fabulous sentiment from Lili of the Valley's For You Circular Sentiments. This card is also for Art by MiRan's Challenge #5 which is an anything goes challenge and for Sketch & Stash's Challenge #138 to use the sketch below. My old stash is the ribbon which retired from Stampin' Up about 3-4 years ago I think and my new stash I suppose is my patterned papers. I have had them for a while but hardly touched them.

And here's my card. I did rotate the sketch to fit my image on better. I couldn't quite get the wavy hair with flicking today but the fringe looks fairly good I think! Need more practice with this!
