Happy birthday Mom x

It's my wonderful Mom's birthday tomorrow. I made a card for Dad to give to her...... that's the thing with making cards- you often end up making more than one for each recipient, especially when they're a family member!

I went for an easel card and added some very pretty vellum as a background. The image is stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and I used a dampe paint brush to draw some of the ink out to colour in the Madame.

If you want to know how to make the scrunched flowers, there's a mini tutorial here.
