Cheesecake Parade!

My Mum has asked me to make a card for her to give my Nan for her Birthday next month.
She had mentioned a few Penny Black stamps that she particularly liked, as well as mauve/purple colours, and she wanted it to have the word 'Mum' on it.
I chose the 'Cheesecake Parade' stamp - I don't actually own this stamp, but had an image left from a swap a while ago with my friend Samantha. I cut the letters using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, the sentiment stamp (which reads 'have a fabulous birthday') is by Hero Arts, and the floral backing paper is from the 'Pocket full of posies' mat stack by DCWV. I've used the 'Swiss Dots' border embossing folder along the edge of the plain cardstock, and a few small Prima flowers to finish it off.



Now I need to go and make the card from me, and put the finishing touches to my present as I'm taking them with me when I go for a visit next week...
