Birthday Card for My Mum

This is the card I made for my Mum for her birthday - hope you liked your cards and had a lovely birthday Mum!

I have based the layout on the Just Magnolia Challenge #3. I knew I was not going to be able to get time to enter the challenge, but I loved the sketch, and so I was able to use one of my new gorgeous Miss Anya stamps. I have coloured her with watercolour pencils (and I know I've got lots to learn about colouring images - my colouring looks very amateur when compared with lots of other crafters' blogs!!).
I just love the green backing paper - wish I'd got more of it, but it was in a kit, and there's not much left. I have a thing about green at the moment - (I'm looking for something gorgeous to buy to wear that is green, but haven't managed to find it yet lol! - just gotta keep looking!). I love the swirl in the corner too - think I'm going to use that idea again!

Items I used:

Papers and Swirl Stamp - Hot Off The Press from Cardmakers Ultimate Floral Pack
Image - Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm
Ribbon, Gems, Wooden Hearts and Charm - from my Stash

Hope I don't have to leave it so long before my next post.

Love From
