Tri shutter birthday card for my Mum

Here is a Tri shutter card I made for my Mums birthday which is today, Happy Birthday Mum.

I covered the Tri shutter card with patterned paper from a papermania 12 x2 12 pad called Temptations. I have never doine a Trishutter card with the centre cut out to create ovals, I think this look is quite different. The image is a Lili of the valley rubber stamp which I have coloured with Promarkers. I have decoupaged the balloons so there are three layers although you can't see this so well in the photo. I have used 3d foam to stick the image to the card and the flowers which are Flora Doodles, which have been at the bottom of my craft stash for ages, have been stuck on with Pinflair glue gel.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
A spoonful of sugar 3d something
