Happy Birthday...

.... to my Mum - its her birthday today and we're off for a nice lunch and a 'bit' of shopping...

I made her a card (obviously!) and here it is:
I used stamps from all the plates I think - & I'm enjoying mixing up the flower heads on the stems to suit the composition of the card rather, the wooden flower have made another appearance too...  Painted papers, scrapbook printed papers, Distress Markers.....
I wanted to show you the grass line - I stamped the flower heads and grass in black, but then sketched in more grass using a green Distress Marker.
Apologies for the shadows on the card- its brilliant glorious sunshine outside - but lets not knock it because its preferable to the mini snow blizzards we had on Monday - when the snow was going past the shop window (where I was working) HORIZONTALLY!!  Bizarre!

OK - must go - shops, lunch and my Mum are calling me!

Take care
