Happy Birthday Mom!

We celebrated my mother's 87th birthday yesterday... we are blessed that she is in good health and still going strong. I used this week's Crazy for Challenges sketch - C4C7 - for the layout for this 5.25" card. This week's challenge from Our Creative Corner was a color challenge. I really loved the combination of Blush Blossom, Sage Shadow, Handsome Hunter and Soft Suede. My mom is a bird lover, so I used Verve's Birthday Surprise for the main image. A little pink bling for the birthday girl, and voila! Happy Birthday Mom!

Here is the recipe:

Stamps ~Verve's Birthday Surprise.
Paper ~ Handsome Hunter, Blush Blossom, Soft Suede, Sage Shadow, White, Autumn Vine DSP (retired).
Ink ~ Soft Suede, Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black.
Accessories ~ Copics, Nestabilitites, Soft Suede 1/2" polka dot grosgrain ribbon, Nestabilities, Hero Arts crystals, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug, Sponge Dauber, Crystal Effects.
