Mum's birthday


It's mum's birthday today. It's a day of mixed emotions because it's the day that dad died nine years ago.

We took mum out for a meal at the local Harvester - I think she enjoyed her day - 91 today!

I used a shaped card adapted on to a white square card blank, cutting round the edges of the base. The flowers were originally white - I brushed them with dusty concord distress ink. The flower centres are Prima and the silver gems Papermania. After taking the photo I realised that I needed to add two gems to the scallops at the base of the card - I added them in time, but didn't take another photo, so you'll have to imagine they are there. The glitter strips across the base were from Poundland. The sentiment was printed on to vellum which was then stuck on to a piece of card torn and distressed with the dusty concord.



This is for:

Ruby's rainbow 42: shaped cards
Fun with shapes and more 122: everything but Christmas (I had to cut round the shape for the base of the card)
Penny's 104: more than 1 fold
Stamp-n-doodle: fabulous folds
Sentimental Sunday 130: easel card
Emerald  faerie garden 37: easel card
That craft place: no squares allowed
Crafting for all seasons 41: use flowers
Eclectic Ellapu 7: celebration with sparkle
There's magic in the air magical Monday: sparkle, sparkle, sparkle
