Happy Birthday Mum

Hello Everyone

Here is a card I made for my Mother In-law’s Birthday:

It is A4 white card folded in half and I have used Papermania 8x8 Rose Garden BP, a lovely Mum stamp from Lily Of The Valley, the Daffodils are a bunch of silk flowers from the Poundshop, and I have just cut of the flower heads and tried to make the backs as flat as possible and used a hot glue gun and stick them to the card and added some punched fern leaves. The sentiment was made on the computer and pearls where found in my stash, I followed a sketch that the brilliant Von made for our craft group on YUKU. I have decoupaged the MUM balloons and coloured the image with copics

R81, R83, R85, E33, E35, E50, E51, R20, B91, B93, C0
