Mothers' Day card

Happy Monday,
Hope everyone had a good weekend, I for one am really enjoying the sunshine at the moment, long may it continue!
The card I'm showing tonight is for a couple of challenges and I made it with my mum in mind for Mothers' day. Mum loves Magnolia stamps as much as me and I just know she will love this one. Really enjoyed making a twisted easel card and I have to say it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.
The challenges are: Stamp Man - Floral Mothers' Day
Sir Stamp-a-lot - Spring colours; green, yellow and/or pink
Magnolia-licious Highlights - Frame projects recipe inc. frame, magnolia image, bling/pearls, trim/ribbon, flowers.

I used: Magnolia Tilda with butterfly dress - I paper pieced Tilda's dress with two different papers
SU flower swirl stamp from Sweet Summer set
Tim Holtz distress inks and SU inks
Nestabilities - Lacy Squares
Basic Grey Curio papers
Flowers - given to me by Fleur (big thanks xxx)
ribbon and pearls from stash

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look
Love Nicola xxx
