Birthday bouquet ...

... Hi!  As I type this message, I'm watching fog roll in around the house - distinctly chilly this morning!  But I've a bright, cheerful birthday card to share with you which should blow away the fog!!


Stamps: WPlus 9 Designs - Fresh Cut Florals, Basic Banner; WMS - Simple Sprig; PTI - Stylish Sentiments: Birthdays
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Crushed Curry
Dies:  WPlus 9 Designs - Fresh Cut Florals, Banner; SU/Sizzix - Holiday Ornaments Framelits
Accessories:  SU Card/DP - Real Red; White Hemp Embossed Card; White Lustre Card

This is my Mum's birthday card - she has her birthday next Friday 18th October, and I'm safe to share it here as Mum is totally computer phobic!!  I created this wonderful bouquet of flowers using the stamps and dies that Tara gave me - thanks!!  They are so, so easy to use.  I made the vase from a die cut Christmas ornament - I simply cut off the bottom!  For the inside I carried over the floral theme with branches of roses and a special sentiment.  I'm hoping that this will get to Mum on time, but I really should have posted it earlier!!


I used a couple of challenges in the making of this card:


From the MUSE card I took the idea of a bouquet of flowers and I used the lovely colours from, the new to me, Monday Mood Board Challenge.

I'm off to post the card now and then pick up Kathryn - she was at a friend's Halloween party and sleepover last night!  See you soon.
