LOTV + C.R.A.F.T challenge

Good evening everyone hope you are well? Right! I might be blowing my own trumpet here but I am really pleased with my card tonight and it looks even nicer irl...ooooh do I sound like a big head? ...hope not :( I made it for my mum for mothers day and wanted it to be really special.

I followed Bev's sketch over at LOTV for this one but decided to make it into a criss cross easel card too, this is the first challenge I'm entering my card into

I luv the easels cards but they are awful to photograph dont ya think ?

The second challenge I'm entering into is the C.R.A.F.T challenge with the theme 'Mothers Day'
