When I was at the party!

This is a card for my Mum, she used to recite this poem to us three girls when we were small, and we loved it, it is so innocent.  It is a great shame that I am unable to recognise the talent with the name of the author, and if anyone does know please tell me and I will add the deserved recognition.
I started the card by using my Cameo Silhouette (TM) to cut a shaped card for the base.
I coloured the stamp in with pro-markers and glazed the wellies and the wings and added some glitter for the wings before the glaze dried.
The stamp is by Crafter's Companion and is from a set called "Patchwork Polly" by Jane Nestorenko.
I then cut a hinged oval, again on the Cameo and put the verse inside which I printed from my computer.
My metallic element comes in the way of gold paper that is used to frame the stamp and the sentiment.
The sentiment is written using the pen facility on the Cameo machine.
I added a glitter flower and a border with an adhesive lace border in the middle.

I hope you like it and I hope my Mum appreciates it too!
