"I need a card for tomorrow"

This is what I was told last night while at work. Why do lads always leave it late to get cards eh? must be a genetic thing, cos girls are always (ok, mostly) well prepared for such events, especially if it's their mothers birthday.
This is what I have made, apparently his mom likes wine and flowers... well who doesn't?! ;)

This beautiful image is from DigiStamp Boutique, meet Alyssa. I've coloured her with promarkers then used a die from a Marianne Creatables set to frame her. Incidently, I received Alyssa as part of a challenge prize from Charisma Cardz, and the die set as part of a challenge prize from Crafty Catz :)
The papers are both from the same paper pad, MME's Lime Twist - Life of the party.
'mom' was cut using mint green glitter card and my Die-namics By The Letter dies, and the number 60 was stamped and coloured in the same colour as the dress, then framed using another of those Marianne dies.
The flowers were stamped using SU's One of a Kind stamp set, then punched out using the matching boho blossoms punch, before finishing each flower with a pale green crystal gem. The leaves are a woodware punch.
Hope his mom likes it, and hope she has a fab 60th birthday too.
