I'm not sure if there is a name for this card. I started with two SU pink pirouette strips punched with MS loop. I cut another pink piece and rounded the corners and used a scalloped nestie to cut the pink arch. I Hand wrote my Mothers Day message and then used a music folder to emboss the arch. I used My Minds Eye papers, one striped and one dotted. They are cream with yellow and pink with a faint touch of green and aged. I cut a piece of the stripe for each of the side legs and sewed them on the front and inside also.Then I put a strip of pale pink lace down the center of each leg. I then cut the dotted paper piece with the label one nestie and attached it to the square pink piece then stamped it with a flourish, put a little stickles on it and then aged the edges. The vintage lady from a graphic 45. I used the striped paper to cut out and make a stool for her to sit on. I attached it with foam so that I could form the corners to create some dimension to it. I then sat her on it. I made one flower from the dotted paper and the other two from pink tissue paper. I added a pearl center to one and a glittered brad to another and to the last one I found the great gold flower button with the pearl center and sewed it onto the flower and then I looped some pink beads from the flower and also some punched MS leaves. I attached that to the punched piece and then to the corner of the image.
Next I had some pretty pale pink ribbon that I made a bow with and attached the smallest flower into the center and then attached it to the corner of the arch. I cut out two leaves shaded and shaped them to go behind the large printed flower and attached to the leg.
