FTTC35 Happy Birthday MUM!!!

Happy Birthday Mum!!!! My Mum is one of my best friends, who has always guided me, encouraged me and been one of the most inspirational people in my life and I LOVE her soooo much!!! {{{HUGS MUM}}} I decided to use the Crazy 4 Challenges number 4 sketch and was also inspired by Flourishes FTTC35 challenge to 'go outside the frame'.

I started with a base of pale pink bazzill layered with light green bazzill, white and some Bella Rose DSP. For the main panel I got to use my brand new Gerbera Daisies by Flourishes! I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black on white and coloured them with markers and a blender pen and then carefully cut them out! I popped them up over a white lattice pendant which in turn was layered on a pale pink Label 8 die cut. The sentiment is from SU's Warmest Regards set, stamped on white and cut out with the Ribbon Tags Trio and attached to the card with some pale pink satin ribbon. Next I stamped, coloured and cut out the butterflies from Gerbera Daisies and popped them up top and bottom of the card. I finished off by adding some Kaisercraft Snow pearls to the top and bottom corners of the Label 8 and to each side of the sentiment panel.

Stamps - Gerbera Daisies (Flourishes), Warmest Regards (SU)

Paper - Pale Pink Bazzill, Light Green Bazzill, White, Bella Rose DSP

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories - Lattice Pendant Die Set, Label 8 Nestabilities, Ribbon Tag Trio Die Set, Pale Pink Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape, Scissors.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!! :)
