Special Card for a Special Person

Wow, Christmas Eve already.  Hope you are all ready.  Done lots of prep today so can enjoy tomorrow with my lovely family.
Been wanting to post this card for a little while but couldn't as it was for my Mum who is a regular visitor to my blog.  She is also a talented card maker.  But she has got it now so I can put it on here.
I decided to go for a decoupage Forever Friends image.  These are so cute and make a change from stamping.  The backing paper was from Papermania.  The strip at the bottom is black mirror card with some lace and gingham peel offs and pearls added.  I added a messy bow using vintage ribbon, a rose from WOC and some decorative pins.  Some metallic brads on the image and a decorative swirl from gems was the finishing touch.
Here is a closer image of the flower bow.
Must say that I loved the way it came out and Mum loved it too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot - use Bingo Board - used lines 1 across(brads, lace, pearls), diagonal (brads, flowers, ribbon)
Divas By Design - 17 Merry Christmas
Creative Inspirations - 143 Anything goes
Scrapbook Sisters - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo Board - used line 1 across (ribbon, gems, glitter/sparkle)

Hope that you all have a wonderful time tomorrow.  Thanks to all my followers and visitors to my blog.  I appreciate all the lovely comments that you make and you are all an inspiration to me.
Merry Christmas
