My mums Birthday Card - specially from me

Another card to share :-)

This one is another Birthday card I made specially for mum, from me, and I used another sentiment freebie from Gingers House.  This would have to be my favorite sentiment in all my stash. And as mum proudly displays all her cards, I thought this would be lovely to look at and sure to bring a smile to her face as she walks around doing her thing.

 Forgive the camera flash to show the glimmer mist sparkle.
I love this flower! I am still addicted to making them lol and I really love the effect of distressing the petals and adding the large glitter flecks and laying them on the wood fiber shavings, so I went with that style again.  I popped some posh pins that I made from leftover beads laying around the house behind the flower to also give a little more 'bling'.  The butterfly is a rubber stamp from my stash that I have dimensioned up and added some pearls to and this may shock you but I used my first ever Tim Holtz product (a distress ink) to stamp it in.  Yes I know! shocking!! but other than this recent new purchase I do not own any Tim Holtz stuff! (that is mighty about to change though now!)

I finished the card with a pritz of clear shimmer glimmer mist and I could not capture the feathers on camera but they have a lovely sparkly shine to them and look just delicious!  I could so have kept this card for myself too! but that just gives me an excuse to make another one just for me :)

Thank you for dropping in on me,
and I hope you like what you see!
