Happy Birthday Mum!

It's my Mum's birthday today...and this is the card that I made for her. I've used an older Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Gift Wrapped', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Indie Chic' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set, the flowers are by Prima, and the brad is BasicGrey.

I'm sure your Mum loved this beautiful design; the layers of DP are really pretty and the faux stitching looks fab :-)

I just grabbed this retired stamp at the NEC a few weeks ago as it's so cute.

Big hugs, Kat xx
