Happy Birthday Mum!

It's my Mum's birthday today...and this is the card I made for her. I used a House Mouse stamp called 'Birthday Cupcake' which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding a generous helping of 'Diamond' Stickles to the frosting. The papers are from the 'Tea House' pack by Dovecraft...I added faux stitching around the edges using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts...and the bunting was cut freehand, and then attached using some pink twine (from the 'Tea Party' collection by Dovecraft). I inked the edges of everything using 'Old Paper' Distress Ink.


Challenges for this card:
**Edited to add - here's the birthday cake I made for my Mum**


It's a lemon sponge filled with lemon buttercream & lemon curd - delicious! :0)
