Best Birthday Wishes


Here's a card that I've made for my MILs Birthday - it also fits into three of this weeks' challenges:

Simon Says - Animal Antics
Gingersnap Creations - Monochromatic
Stamp Something - A Sketch Challenge

Here's my card...

I used this super House Mouse Stamp "Birthday Cupcake" which I stamped using Mediterranean Blue Brilliance Ink and water brushed it slightly to soften the lines.

The flower in the bottom left corner is a Camelot Rose by Prima - isn't it beautiful, I love these. The other roses are from my stash.

I turned the sketch and made this as an Easel Card, I love these cards (as you've probably noticed LOL!!).  I've put my sentiment on the base of the card and framed it using an adhesive chipboard frame from K&Cos Blue Awning range.  The papers are also by K&Co from the same range.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by.
Hope you like it.
