Birthday Wishes for Mum!

Good morning all!

It's finally friday after what has seemed like the longest week!! I am so looking forward to a lie in in the morning and an evening out with friends tomorrow night!!

It was my mums birthday a few weeks ago and my dad asked me (very last minute I may add) to make a card from him for my mum! So this is what I came up with.


A close up shot of that beautiful frame...

... and of course the decorated inside


Materials

CS: SU Basic Black and Confetti White

Papers: Real Red Designer Series (Bright stack)

Stamps: SU Sincere Salutations, Four Frames, Flower stamps from Elzybells

Tools: SU Decorative Label punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Real red, Old Olive and staz on ink pads

Misc: Sponge daubers

I loved making this card. I had these Elzybells flower stamps that I bought when they closed down and have never used them, so I dug them out and decided to use the poppies. Love the bright colours!! I am also loving the four frames set. You get four stamps of decorative frames in the set, but this is my favourite!!

If you would like to order any of the items I have used for todays card or any other Stampin Up products you may want, just drop me an e-mail. Don't forget, if you place an order of £75 before the end of August you receive the free gift of a cosmetic purse (exclusive to SU), pack of 24 silver clips and a reel of grosgrain ribbon. I just love a freebie, don't you?!

Well I hope you all have a fab weekend, whatever you're up to and thankyou for stoppping by!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~

I love the poppies Vicky especially as they have no black outline so they look very realistic. Why is it they can't think about birthdays a little earlier??
Enjoy your weekend :)
