Suspension Card- Birthday

Happy Birthday Mom!!

For my Dad's birthday I made a special shaped card so I figured I needed to do the same for my Mom's, I love the way this card came out.  This is my new favorite and will for sure be making more of them in the future.  I got the idea of this swing type card from SplitCoast Stampers.  I'm not sure what my style is yet because I love to try different techniques and styles, but I do love to make cards that the receiver will enjoy. 

Designed the shapes on my Gypsy using George & Basic Shapes and Elegant Edges
The flower came from flower Shop and found this tutorial here:
Paper: Bazzill Dotted Swiss
PaperTrey Inc, Autumn Rose cardstock & Ribbon
My Minds Eye, Bohemia Collection, Bliss Friends
Sentiment: PaperTrey Inc, Birthday Basics
REcollections: Floral Embellishments

I'm also entering this card into Cardz TV's very first Challenge:
