Birthday Card


I finally got round to making a birthday card for my mum.  There was still plenty of time as it's not needed until a week tomorrow, but it feels good to have finally made something.  I stamped the main crafty individuals image with dusty concord distress stain over a patterned paper.  The flower was made from punching two different sized flowers from book pages and curling the petals.  The larger one is edged in dusty concord distress ink.  The outer edge of the white card was coloured with antique linen distress stain to tie in with the paper on the right and the paper flower.
