Happy Bithday to You!



Happy Birthday Mom Matter!!!!!!!!

Today is my MIL's birthday! This is her card, I hope she likes it!!!

I used SU! upsy daisy inked in pumpkin pie and dusted with yellow pearl ex for the shimmer.

Since today is Flutter by Wednesday, I knew I wanted to use this stamp and accent it with pretty little flutters! I used Charisma Cardz sketch and these lemony fresh colors were inspired by two different challenges; Cute Card Thursday wanted citrus colors and the Res-Q-Challenge wanted to see "muddy" brown and....well, pop over to read their inspired color story!!!! :) I muddied up my white embossed background just for them!!! The little yellow dots are punched from my crop-o-dile. Just the right size!!

Well, I hope my MIL is enjoying her day so far! (personal note for Susan...we'll pop over later for a visit, hehe)

Blessings!
