Blooming birthday!

My mum is celebrating a round number birthday this year - this is the card I managed to make for her after suffering a severe inspiration bypass. I’m kind of happy with it, I just wish it had come about more easily. The important thing though is that Mum liked it!

The flowers are coloured with a mixture of Distress ink, Clean Color markers, Copics, pencil and gel pen. The green dots are stamped with the little circles in the Happy stamp set and I used some textured gold cardstock and sequins for a bit of added glamour.

Joanne, this is gorgeous! I have this stamp set and love it (and I think it may be calling my name now - haha!). Your flowers are beautifully colored, and what a lovely layout with the die cut so show the textured gold. The sequins are a beautiful color and add just the right amount of sparkle! Stunning card, sweet friend, and I know your mum loves it! Hugs! xoxo
