Happy Birthday Mom
My mom's pretty cool. She is a person I look up to, and wonder how she raised six wild kids in all the places we lived. I have had my hands full with three kids but she handled all six of us! She is very special to me. Her birthday is this week, and this is the card I made for her! Lots of texture, but I am a nut about real textures on a card or scrapbook page. The pretty embossed white paper is from a sheet of textured papers I found at Hobby Lobby. The piece of mesh with a sheer overcoat is from a friend. The black ribbon on the bottom I ran through my crimper and it only slightly rippled it. I found that wound white ribbon at Target in their scrapbook area. I stamped the central daisy three times so I could cut out the paisley centers and piece them back on the petals to give more depth. I used a scalloped rectangle nestie diecut for the frame and wound some lacey seam binder around it to give it texture. The happy birthday sentiment is from Hampton Arts. I found the black and white prima flowers at Tuesday Mornings also. The panel designer papers are from a black and white scrapbook collection I picked up from Tuesday Mornings. I also used a Sizzix die cut called scribble swirl die. I popped things up with pop dots and used Hershberg Schutz floral spray I found at Michael's. Lots of fun details and was fun to make!
