Happy Birthday Mum!

Today is my lovely Mum's birthday and I made her this card. I can't be with her today so I gave it to her a few days ago. Hope you have a lovely birthday Mum. xxx

Finding a card like this in the April 2012 Cricut magazine (created by Aimee Kidd), I decided to adapt it to make this card for Mum. I wanted mine to be much larger than the original so set about altering the measurements of all the cuts and changed the bird and some of the decorations. I used the Birdhouse from the Cindy Loo cartridge and the bird from the Straight from the Nest cartridge.

I used Bazzill to cut my card base and Fancy Pants - Beach Babe papers for the other cuts and punching.

Also used:
Martha Stewart lacy border punch, Woodware scalloped  circle and frond punches,Stampin' Up circle punch, Flat backed pearls, Ribbons, Colorbox chalk inks, a heart shaped button,a  Lili of the Valley greetings stamp, Tim Holtz note holder pin thing-a-me-jig and some bakers twine.

This is one of the cards I made for this month's DT gallery for Scrapology. Please take a look at the blog if you want more details of the challenge and prize.

The challenge has been set by Shabana from Mei Flowers, and involves using this bingo card from Chrissy at Merly Impressions.
The idea is to choose three items in a row to include on your card, I chose layers, lace and Pearls, but notice it also fits lace, flowers and Punches or die cuts.

Happy birthday Mum !
Thanks for looking.
