Daring Cardmakers Challenge- Mums the word!

Hello everyone, I have made this card for the Daring cardmakers challenge which is outlined below. In the UK it is not mothers day this weekend, we celebrate in March. I thought I may just send this to my Mum to tell her how much I care! I used some K&Co paper which I spritzed with glimmer mists. I stamped onto the paper with stamps and heat embossed the image. I then used another colour ( pink to heat emboss the flowers onto. I sewed them onto the backing paper with seed beads. I then added the heart by heat embossing and added the sentiment MUM.
Hi, it's Tanya Leigh here and I am back after a long break from the Daring Cardmakers. The break was needed for different reasons but I am now back and have had fun getting back into making cards.
This week it's my first time to set the dare since being back - it's Mother's Day here in New Zealand on Sunday 10th May (not sure about other parts of the world), so this week's dare is to make a card with the word MUM on it somewhere.
It could be Mother's Day, birthday etc.

That backing paper looks great Pascale!
I’ve never used Glimmer Mists but I love the effect it creates.

It’s a beautiful card and I’m sure your mum will be thrilled to receive your card……..just because!
