Teddy Bo Birthstone Challenge

Hi everyone on this last day of 2011.
Today I have made a card for my mum's 79th birthday next week. To be honest it's the first card I've made for ages that hasn't been a DT card or a Christmas card and I have really enjoyed it. I also wanted to make a card for the Teddy Bo challenge because I love Gayle's images so much, but have recently been unable to make any cards with her images due to DT committments.
The challenge is to use your birthstone colours. I didn't know whether to choose reds ( garnet) for mum or cool blues (aquamarine) for my birthstone. As you can see I opted for the blues 'cos I love pastel shades best.

The image is 'Jolly' from Teddy Bo & Co.
The blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The Seam binding is from Create and Craft.
Pearls are from stash.
The papers are from Nitwit collection - bundle of joy.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

Enjoy your New Year Celebrations

Happy New Year ,Hugs Sheryl xxx
