Busy Baking!

It was my Mum's birthday yesterday...so now it's safe to show you the card I made for her:


I used a couple of Lili of the Valley stamps...'Busy Baking' and 'I Baked a Cake'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from a bargain pad that I picked up recently in TKMaxx called 'Vintage Charms' by My Minds Eye...I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and black and white gel pens. I cut the numbers using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia Alphabet' dies, and Nesties for all of the circles. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black, and the pearls came from Hobbycraft.


I just had to use these stamps on the card, as I also made my Mum's birthday cake:
