Happy Birthday, Mum!

Today is my Mum's birthday. I always try to make her a purple card, since her birthstone is amethyst. I turned to my K & Company scrap booking supplies for this one. There is no stamping on this card. I used some gorgeous patterned paper from Brenda Walton, along with the coordinating embellishments. I went over the lilacs with a glitter pen to give it a bit of sparkle...I did that after I took the photo so you won't see it here. Those little dots of bling are part of a free gift I received when I purchased stamps from Susana's site. The sentiment is from an Anna Griffin kit.



Supplies-card base: stampers white(PTI).card stock:textured(CTMH). paper:Juliana(Brenda Walton). butterfly:Poppy Pop Ups(Tim Coffey). sentiment:Anna Griffin. Punch(Martha Stewart). Other:Swiss dots embossing folder and Cuttlebug(Provo Craft). Ribbon:Offray.


Thanks for the visit. Until next time...

Blessings~

this is... I was going to say absolutely beautiful and then I noticed that Kristie said that. Then I notice that it was called absolutely stunning and absolutely gorgeous... I agree with them all. I love it. I'm partial to purple, but I would like this even if it weren't purple. You did a great job as usual!
