Happy Birthday to my MOM!

On December 1st it was my Mom's birthday =)  I for sure inherited my crafty touch from my Mom.  My mom owns a folk art painting store where she teaches classes and plays with paint all day, living her dream.  When I saw the image I used on her card I knew I had to have it and use it for my Mom.  Her store name is "Country Hearts" and her colour scheme is green and white, so I tried to incorporate the colours and the "hearts" into her card, let me know what you think.....
Yes I know, ANOTHER Lulu!  I could not resist, you have to agree Lulu is too adorable to sit cooped up in my stamp boxes - she must be let out to play and she was soooo perfect from my Mom's card!!
