Birthday card for my lovely mum


It was my mum's birthday today, so I'd made this card earlier in the week and can now show it lol.

I had this lovely fairy stamp from Lili of the Valley to play with so I stamped her up and coloured her in with my trusty promarkers. I used some papers from a Forever Friends pad and layered onto pink cardstock. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the lacy border and made a bow with some ribbon from my stash. I added glitter to the fairy's wings & skirt for extra sparkle. I added a punched butterfly also glittered and the roses are from my stash. I printed the greeting out on the pc and die cut with my Nesties.

I am entering this card into a few challenges: Craftilicious whose theme is Birthdays, Pollycraft Monday Challenge whose theme was also Happy Birthday, and My Time to Craft who wanted Checks this week!

Thanks for looking!
