Mother's Birthday

My mum had her birthday this week.  She loves flowers and I thought she would adore this floral image by Flourishes on her card.  It's from the stamp set Mother's Words of Wisdom - how appropriate ;)

I had a tough time taking a photo of the card as the colours didn't seem quite the same as the actual card.  Nevertheless, I'm happy to report mum loved the card, and she has it on display in the house.  It's always such a great feeling to see your cards being loved.

I had all the copics I used listed but somehow I lost my original draft on blogger ;( . The patterned papers are from Studio Calico's Autumn Press and the tiny butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch.

I'm entering this for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #167 challenge & at Simon Says Stamp's Birthday challenge.  I have great love for flowers just like mum, and I guess you can tell how much I'm in love with Flourishes stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Kary, this really is beautiful! Although you say you had difficulty photographing the colours, I think they look amazing! No surprise that your mum loves this card. Beautiful wreath image - not familiar with this one as I'm pretty new to Flourishes stamps (ltd availability in Uk) x
