Happy Birthday, Mom!


My Mother's Birthday is this Wednesday. She'll be 90! I am so blessed to have BOTH parents.

My mother likes to say that she has every card I ever made her.

So I thought I'd create her birthday card using the TCP Tuesday Inspiration Challenge as a jumping off point.

Amy, Julie, and Lori are all masters of clean, simple, beautifully done cards, so I was channeling them when I put together this card.

I just used the saying from "Bearing Flowers". And the Big Scallop and Lacey Butterfly CutUps Dies.

And I finished it of with a little Cotton Candy Divine Twine and some Cabbage Roses that I made with the Rose Seam Binding.

Such a pretty card. I was so surprised how easy it was to come together. This is definitely one that I'll make again.
