Lucy's Cards - Challenge 8 and Challenge 7 winners

OK, this photo makes me happy.
My mother grew and arranged all the flowers for my wedding.  She's amazing. Seriously amazing.  All that work and commitment.  And all those vintage teapots... (she loves china... and flowers...)
I took this photo the day before the wedding, just as she finished the final touches.  It's one of my favourite photos.
So the challenge:
Create a card inspired by this photo.
Your card can be any theme.
Link me to your blog post or photo using the Mister Linky box below.  Remember to link directly to the card.

Challenge closes: Sunday 11th April.
Hope you get a chance to enter.

And here are the winners of Challenge 7 (my husband helped me judge this one - too many fab entries)
                            1.  Joy
                            2.  Agata
                            3.  Katherine
I loved these 3 cards - and for such different reasons.  Joy - I really adore those trees - so striking and elegant against that polka paper.  Agata - wow.  Such a simple card with such impact.  And Katherine - how cute can a card BE???
