Mom's Birthday Card

I thought I'd participate in a bunch of entries at one time to challenge myself, but also I needed to make a card for my mom's birthday (so two birds, one stone)! Ok, here goes:

1. -

Tic-Tac-Toe I chose Stamp-Card- Scallops. I made the card, obviously, and the scallop I used was from the Storybook Cart. I stamped Happy Birthday on the top left hand corner.

2. -

This is a Happy Birthday Card for my Mom.

3. -

I used a Martha Stewart flower border punch for the top and bottom borders.

4. -

The card is pink and purple all around, I stuck with the sketch, I made the 3D flower from random flowers (all from the Give A Hoot Cart.), and the butterfly is from Storybook, as well.

I used a white Sakura gel pen for the stitching and the dots on the scallop. And put a clear jewel in the middle of the flower.

I hope that I didn't miss anything!
