The Card that isnt!!!!!

Hi Everyone, Wow its Saturday again!! Cant believe how quickly the weeks are flying past!!! The title of this post has a wee story to it!!! 
I saw the most amazing Paper Cutting the other week from Paper Panda and went to their store and bought the template! (nothing like diving in at the deep end!!!) Well Im in love with papercutting now but the wee design I picked for Mums Mothers day card was just too pretty and cool to just stick on a card so I have mounted it and framed it so its now a whole gift!!! It took me about 5 hours in total to cut it all out,  4 scalpel blades and a whole bucket of concentration!!! Thankfully though no cut fingers!!! 
Anyways enough chat. Its for the Challenge on My Time to Craft which is a creation for Mum or a Special Lady.  
So here is my Creation for next weekends Mothers Day here in the UK. 
Pop Over to Paper Panda, Im sure the designs you will see will blow your socks off!!!! I think I might be doing some more soon!!!! 

I do hope that this post has worked as its scheduled as I am out this morning!
Love and Sparkles
