Happy Birthday, Mom!

Tomorrow it is my Mom's 70th birthday! So today, after everybody was out of the door, I sat down to make her a card. It felt so good to sit in a quiet house, don't get me wrong, I love my kids dearly but to have some quiet time....wonderful!
I have used the Sunflower set 2 from Spellbinders, an older set but new to me. I cut the flower 6 times, inked up the edges with some orange and started "forming" them with my flower tool kit from Punch a bunch, you can get it at SGD.

It makes your flowers look a lot more real. For the center I wanted to use Flowersoft, but I did not have the right colour......what now, so I used the colour autumn and sprinkled some chocolate re inker on it, let it dry and voila, the right colour.

The big leaves came with the set and the smaller leaves are dies from Marianne.

The border along the bottom is done with a Martha Stewart punch, dp from Kaiser Craft, embossing folders from Cuttlebug, sentiment from Clear Dollar stamps, the tag is made with a punch, ribbon and brads from my stash. And the circles are made with Nestabilities.

I hope my Mom will like it, have a great evening, Anja

Hope your mom had a wonderful day!
I love your sunflower! I thought it was a silk flower - it looks more real than most cardstock flowers do. I'm going to have to check out that tool.!
