Wedding Anniversary

My mum is a seamstress.  She has made lots of clothes for her family over the years, including her husband.  So, when I saw this image from www.squiglysplayhouse.com (though the link doesn't seem to be working for me today), I knew that I would have to colour it up and use it for my mum's wedding anniversary.  [She loved it, by the way!]

The inspiration for my card came from here, from a blog by Sonja called "Flatis Stempelwelt".  I was inspired by her layout, the colours, and the flowers that she made.

The centre of my flower is a homemade "button", but without the button holes punched out.  I followed the instructions by Jennifer Pauli.

I've used a Martha Stewart punch called Arch Lattice, and adhered the pearls in my own swirls.
