Happy Birthday Mum

As promised I'm back with a second post tonight and it's another LOTV image. It's my Mum's Birthday on Saturday so I wanted to make her a special card as she really appreciates them and usually keeps them on display for 2-3 months. I haven't made her an easel card before and as I love these thought it would be something special for her to display. I just love this stamp and have used her several times lately in various colours but blue and aqua is a first for me. I added lots of glitter to her wings and flowers. Papers are Papermania Aqua capsule collection, flowers are all Wild Orchid. I took the stamens out of a cherry blossom flower and added a small rose. I used a Sakura silver gellyroll pen for more sparkle on the punched leaves and various shiny embellies and ribbon.

This card fits so many challenges
