Firsts

I have a couple of firsts to announce today. You will probably notice I have a new badge on my sidebar, I have been accepted as the newest member of the Perfectly Rustic Design Team -Wooo Hoooo. My first inspiration card will be for the first year anniversary so stay tuned for that one.
The other firsts are related to my card, My mum is turning 60 which is pretty monumental so I thought she needed a card that was pretty special. I saw this image and thought my mum would love it. Its called Women with Gardenia and Pearls and it is my first Aurora Wings image I have used. This is also the first spring card I have attempted.
