Crafts Beautiful - Photo Challenge

The lovely Kate over at Crafts Beautiful challenged us to make a card using a photo. This is a photo of my mum, it's the earliest she has of her and it was very small so I thought it would be a nice surprise for her if I enlarged it, cleand it up and made a card out of it for her.I printed two photos, and used one to make another layer -decoupage style. I've also added some mini brads for buttons, a paper flower for her button hole and, of course some rosey cheeks.
Somebody said that they could see the family resemblance, what do you think?

Like this Lou. I did photos cards for my inlaws using photos of them as children last year for their 65 birthday(s) and they loved them.
