Mum's The Word

Hello everyone,

Today's card is inspired by last Friday's Clean & Simple Stamping sketch. I used some more of the images sent to me by Erin T. as they were perfect for this sketch.

The card base is from Recollections. The images are Waltzingmouse Big Blooms Chrysanthemums. The leaves are BasicGrey Sugar Rush punched with a five-petal punch and affixed to the flowers with American Crafts mini jewel brads. The sentiment is Stampin' Up It's Your Birthday.

This is a different card for me but I love it. I think the colours just pop and attaching the flowers with pop dots really adds dimension. This is my second take on this card. The first time around I just used plain metal brads but it was too bland. I love the little bit of sparkle these simple mini brads add.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
