Birthday Bear

Morning all! It's a wee bit chilly here in Hull today (was -2 on the car display when I left for work at 8am this morning!!). At least it's warm here in the office lol. Nephew and his girlfriend are both back from Australia now and it's her mum's birthday soon so she's asked me to make her a card. Got the FF Black and Gold CD free with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine so couldn't wait to have a play, this is what I came up with (sorry for the squint - I haven't had a drink...honest!) :
Recipe :
Decorative Edge - Martha Stewart PATP Eylet Lace
Beige Card - Bazzill Bling Blank Check
Backing Papers/Image - Forever Friends Black And Gold CD
PAIR of Flowers - From Stash
PAIRS of Diamante - Papermania Mosaics (Tiger Eye)
Die Cut Shape - Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 10

I'm entering this card into the following Challenges :
ABC Challenge - I for In Pairs
Colour Create - Challenge 89 - Light and Dark Browns with White and/or Cream
Secret Crafter - Challenge 170 - Ribbons
