Mother's day round one

I'm so excited, this is the first card I'm photographing with my fabulous new camera. I only got it a few days ago, and have managed to figure out how to take pictures using the automatic settings but that's pretty much it. I can't wait for the weekend to have a little more time to play around with it.

Today's card is for Mother's Day round one, which is the UK mother's day in March. Round two will be in May for Finnish Mother's Day. I think it's strange that they are at different times. Anyhow, as I figured it's highly unlikely the Culinary Consultant would be making a card for his Mum, I thought I might as well do it. I used the sketch over at Retro Sketches, and a cute stamp from a set that came free with a crafting magazine. I was also inspired by the bow tie theme over at Fusion Card Challenge as well as the bright colours and the bow tie in the inspiration picture over at Cure for the Monday Blues. I would also like to enter the Girly Girl challenge over at The Pink Elephant, the Mum's the word challenge over at Digi Choosday, For a special Lady over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Mother's Day over at Dream Valley Challenges.
