Two in One

Greetings one and all, the sun was out here-I hope the day was bright where ever you are :)
Today's card is a little different as it is two cards in one! It was a request from my friend-a frugal fella whose mum's birthday is close to Mother's Day, so he wanted one card for both occasions.  He let me know that she likes dragons and owls, I tried to keep it light and bright for spring, so here we go:

The doily bits are just one die cut doily cut up, the dragon topper and Paris tag are from Kanban (in my stash cos I got them cheap somewhere!).  Stamps are by Visible Image, Kanban and borrowed from a friend! The ribbon and charm are from my stash-I did make it clear that I have oodles of charms, right?! Flowers are from Wild Orchid, save for the white one in the bottom left corner that I attached some fake feather to (I am allergic to real feathers!!)-that lovely flower was handmade for me by a nice lady called Elaine who lives just up the road!
My friend liked the card, I just hope that his mum does too :)
Thanks for stopping by-let me know what you think, I do love to read your comments.
Until next time, Happy crafting xx
