Happy Birthday MUM

Good Morning everyone,
Hope you are all enjoying this Bank Holiday & surprisingly the sunshine that has shown itself!
I thought I would share a card I made for my Mum's birthday which was yesterday. She loves pink, simple & flowers so this is what I came up with.

I made a scalloped circle card base using my grand dies from spellbinders, then cut an extra single circle for the card front. The card base was then scored and folded to form an easel card

The image is Cosmos from A Passion for Stamps which I resizes and added the sentiment before printing off. This was painted using distress inks. This was then cut using the circle cutter from We R Memory Keepers as was the embossed circle on the base of the card and 2 kraft card mounts.
Kraft card was then bordered with a Martha Stewart punch and an embossed strip was then added to this along with a ribbon and bow. This was then applied to the card using foam pads to act as the stopper.
Enjoy the rest of this sunny Bank Holiday!
