My Mum's Birthday...

... is this week and this is the card I have made for her. It hasn't turned out exactly as I'd planned and I'm not 100% happy with it, but its growing on me! I think it's because I feel it's a little busy, my cards are usually more simple!

The image was kindly sent to me by Sally in a recent swap and coloured in with my whispers pens, with some glitter glue added to the centers of the flowers for added sparkle. The patterned paper is Bo Bunny, cardstock from DCWV, embossed with divine swirls cuttlebug folder. 'MUM' was spelt with Brenda Pinnick alphabet stickers and faux stitching added with a white sakura pen. Natural raffia ribbon and bow added to finish.

Hope you've all had a great weekend. I've been working so this is the only card I've managed to make. I've been itching to get creative but not much opportunity much to my dissapointment. Why oh why do we have to work! I'd love to be a kept women so I could stay home every day and craft to my hearts content!

Take care x

Well I don't think it's busy Vicky, I think it's lovely. All my cards tend to be busy, I don't understand the concept 'less is more' lol!
