Slightly Shabby Mothers Day

A Mothers Day card with a beautiful crochet flower my Mum made for me last week when she visited.  I really need to learn to crochet . . . . and get better eyesight as well to do such intricate work  : )
I used the sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps and two different bingos from Totally Papercrafts and Allsorts Challenges.

Supplies:  pink square card base, light green cardstock, dp from a Cre8tiv mini stack, lace from $2 shop, crochet flower, plastic pearl cabachon  for flower centre, pearls, Memento Rose Bud ink, glue dots, Zig two-way glue pen, ds tape.

Tools:  Big Shot, Spellbinders Moroccan Motifs die, sentiment stamp from JustRite Happy Everything Tag Making Kit (these stamps are so tiny)
