Mum's Birthday Card

Woo this is my 100th post how exciting!!

I thought I'd share the card I made for my Mum's Birthday last week!!

I embossed the background with one of the CuttleBug All-In-One folders and then used a Paint Dabber to highlight some of the raised areas! I got this idea from Tim Holtz and his August Tag, which I sadly haven't been able to fully complete but just used this technique instead, then went around it with the Pink from the Summer Edition Distress Inks.

For the focal point I used my nesties and cut one from Silver mirror board and the other from white card which I also inked while it was still in the die.  I then decorated it with 2 of my handmade flowers (pink) and 2 white clay roses I had made and also tinted these with the Distress Ink.

For the sentiment I used the Quickie Glue Pen and some Glitter and mounted the sentiment on some more silver mirror card.

I shall be entering this into Make It MondayAnything GoesDivas By Design and Cupcake Crafts!
