Happy Birthday Mom




Yesterday was my Mom's 70th birthday so here is the card I made for her. I doubled up on challenges this week for this card using Friday Sketcher's Sketch #69 and Just Magnolia's Week #22 -challenge on embossing. I coloured in Tilda on Neenah cs with my copics that I picked up at Magnolia Stamps. Isn't she adorable? I used my nestabilities to cut and emboss and my cuttelbug folders to emboss the background patterened papers. I also used some Prima flowers, Stickles, a Doodlebug sugar coated brad, u/k ribbon, some bling and a heart charm from Micheals and a Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies. I also used a SU oval and scalloped oval punch for the sentiment. I hope my Mom likes the card!
