Basket Of Flowers ............ and a chat.

This card I made this morning, along with finishing 2 others which I can't show as they are for someone else's mum, This one is for my mum, it is 3d, and looks like a real basket,
It has been decoupaged with hand cut roses, and handle.
The Roses pull out to show the photo above, which includes a few peel offs,
I wrote on the back of this part on the lower half so it can't be seen when the roses are back in the basket.
I have had a wonderful day, my hubby took myself and 4 recycling bags of blankets and towels to our local RSPCA centre, and we did look for a dog, as he agreed that I can now have a dog, I want a smallish sized dog, that we can also then take away with us in the campervan on holidays.
but they didn't have any smallish dogs, apart from bull mastif's, boxer's, or large dogs like rotties, which I don't have anything against, but our house is not right for them, and my boys are fussy as well, lol,
Then we spent a couple of hours with my mum and dad,
gave her her cards and present, as (at the time) we thought we wouldn't get to see her tomorrow for mothers day as my middle son Hayden had a football match to play in,
But just got a phone call to say its cancelled due to many players on both teams being ill.

Below you can see the card again.
I am entering this 3d shaped card into the following challenges -
Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Celebrations (whats better than to celebrate your mum)
I am of to knit again now while watching Most Haunted Live,
Have a fantastic Mother's Day and weekend everyone.

Hi Angie,
This is a great card idea. I love the way the roses come out of the basket to reveal the greeting. It's fantastic.
