My Mums birtday card - recycled

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.Off to work soon and then up to see my Mum to wish her a Happy Birthday,Apologies for not getting around to many of you yesterday, i have a poorly hubby and my boyo was not feeling too tip top either.
So here is my Mums birthday card from us all.I am not entering this in to any challenges as this is a card i have recycled.The main topper on the card is a card i made a few months ago and it has sat in my box as i didn`t want to part with it.I have mounted it on to an 8x8 card blank and i have added pearl trim, pearls, more flowers and sparkle and a sentiment.I decorated the inside with a beautiful verse and then made a very simple box which i just embossed and added a large cream bow to, i wanted the wow factor to be saved for the inside.
So here it is:

And here it is,, some of you probably remember the first card which is now in the centre.
I have really gone to town on this one.lol
 
A close up of the pic.
 

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, i should be around to see you later and theni need to sort out my stuff ready for the craft fair tomorrow.
Huge hugs to all
