Saying 'Happy Birthday Mum', with flowers.

Hi Guys',

I don't know about anyone else, but September is definately the birthday season for me. I have seven family birthdays.

So here's the first one. It's for my lovely Mum. She's 84 this year. Wow.








Her favourite colour is blue, but I sent her a blue one last year, so seeing as I am still going through my purple and lilac phase, I thought I'd go with that. She loves flowers, so I chose an MCS digi stamp from 'Fanciful Florals', and used promarkers to colour it. The backing papers are Papermania, from their rich purple collection. The spellbinder grand large scallop mat and the grommet 'MUM' tag, are both cut in white 240gsm linen card.









Some purple ribbon from my stash, a couple of pearl hatpins and some pearl embellishments and it's done. Hope you like it.


I am entering this card into the following challenges :-


Pan Pastels UK Challenge - All about stripes.
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything goes.
Inky Impressions Challenge - Anything goes.
ABC Challenges - W for wishes.
Heck of a Challenge - Anything goes.
 


Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and look at my blog.
