My mom at age 3 card/LO

This is the second card i've made using the card inspirations from my friend, Jenee's Pinterest Board called Pretty Stuff I'll Never Do.  Interested in seeing the inspirations i am using?  Here is the link.

I really tried to find a similar photo shown in the inspirational photo/card, but came to the conclusion that the picture of my mom would be more meaningful to me so i cropped a picture i had of her and used it instead.  I like it so well that i plan to frame it instead of using it as a card.
I was going to share a close-up but i don't think it is necessary.  The card base is 4 x 6".  The first layer is music sheet type paper, or you can use the paper at Graphic Fairy found here.  Oh and say you don't have an awesome photo like i do, my suggestion is to use this sweet fairy here and change your color scheme to blue. Ok, sizing..the first doily behind the picture measures 3.75 in diameter and then pink one on top of it measures 2.5", the small one with my mom's name/age is 1.5".  My mom's picture measures 2.25 x 2.75"
