Birthday Card


It's my mums birthday in May so I set about making her a card using the scrunched flowers idea which Kate recently used on her mothers day card.  The colours don't look so faded IRL but it's so hard to get a decent photo!!!  I used spun sugar distress stain around the edges.  The flowers and leaves are sizzix die cuts stamped with timber brown stazon using the scratches background stamp.  They are coloured with spun sugar and walnut stain stains. For the leaves I used forest moss and peeled paint stains. 


There is quite a lot of depth to this card as the flower sizes sit inside each other but from the first photo it looks quite flat.


I added a sentiment and some pearlised gems.

Thanks Kate xxx
