Mum's Birthday Card

Thought I would share the card I made today for Mum's Birthday with you!
I was going to make her card with an image of Bo Peep from Sassy Cheryl  (she has recently, in her 70's, started learning to shepherd with her border collie) until she made a throw away comment the other week about one day having a mobility scooter with her dog in the basket! After that I just had to use another image that I spotted on Just Inklined!

The image is called Renie & Scrappy, I think it's hilarious,
 I just hope Mum does too!!!!
I  made an easel card with it! The image was coloured with promarkers. 
The background was chalked.
The papers were from my stash which I have vowed to use up (Lol) before I buy anything else! 
They were from Do Crafts but not sure what they're called!
The little 'unique' ticket stubs were a Freebie from Sentiments 4 you 
I have looked at these many times & wanted to use them, this just seemed 
the ideal project as my Mum is indeed unique!

For the sentiment on the stop I used the same ticket stub but I added a text box & wrote my own greeting! I also added a bit of lace & some funky fibres!
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges
