Something A Bit Different

 Something a bit different from me today. It is my dearest Mam's 75th birthday on Tuesday so I wanted to make her something a bit more elegant rather than my usual cutsie style of cards

A bit out of my comfort zone here but I did a bit of blog hopping for inspiration and I came across a beautiful card..... see here...... by Julie of 'Julies Inkspot' which inspired me to make this card
If you have never visited Julie's blog then you are in for a treat as her work is breathtaking!!

I used white Core-Dinations Card stock which I have inked up with chalk ink, a dovecraft stamp which I have had for ages and never used, sentiment printed on the computer & punched flowers and pearls
