A very special day - Happy birthday Mum!

Hello my dears, how is your crafty week going so far??? 
today is a special post.. there are special dates on your calendar, and today is on of them, my Mum's birthday.. Happy birthday Mum!!!!!!
So, I can safely share my card now...

this card has used a lot of my favourite things, like images from Day for Daisies,, this one is called "birds in my hair" coloured with my Spectrums.The papers are Pink Paislee London Market, the largest of the backing papers was from the ever useful Mel Stampz.. using the dotty background papers...

I have added lots of embellishments, and a Kaisercraft birdcage.I tied the charm on with some button twine.The lace flowers I got from eBay, the post mark was added as a second stamping( I stamped on a bit of scrap paper first) using LOTV Love sentiments sheet. I added a doily a pin, and lots of stitching too!
