Happy Birthday Mom

Hi All~

We are having just beautiful weather here....the sun is is in the 40's....the snow is melting....what more can we ask for?? I know, my husband keeps telling me it is only March don't get to used to this weather.

This is a card I made for my mom's birthday. This is a picture of the inside...yep it is another easel card!

And here is the pretty flower and ribbon from the front, I added pearls to the punched border.....

and here is the image, which is a Sarah Kay design from Stampavie....isn't she just so pretty picking these lovely hollyhocks from her flower garden.

This is the card opened in it's "easel form". These are so nice for displaying.
...and finally the front of the card. I colored this little cutie with copics and used my Nesties to cut her out and then dusted a little light blue chalk around it before removing the die. I handcut around the label to make the mat because I used the largest one. The border punch is from Martha and I antiqued it with a dab of distressing ink and added these tiny little pearls. The flower is from my stash and I added a larger pearl to the center and used another Martha punch for the leaves. The little butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch as well, and I again added some tiny pearls. This paper is from My Mind's Eye and it is so glittery and just yummy, the pic does not do it justice. I wished I would have bought more of these paper packs....each piece in this book is as pretty as the other.
