Happy Birthday, Mom



My MIL's birthday is coming up and I decided I'd CASE one of Yvonne's cards that she designed as Spellbinders' First International Guest Blogger. I chose to use shades of pink for my card and JustRite's wild rose stamp from their Plant a Little Love set as my centerpiece. Stamped on PTI's Vintage Cream CS, I colored the flowers with Copics: RV02, RV14, RV19, G07, G24 and BG000. I needed the larger Octagon die for this flower to fit, so then just hand cut the same die, leaving a narrow pink border mat. The Doodle Parts swirls are a bit hard to wrap around the frame while also laying over/under each other and gluing down. Think if I make another like this, I'll attach those with a small glue dot on the back of the frame -- learning by doing is always the best way to learn! Also, after re-reading Yvonne's directions, I see that she actually used foam tape to pop the swirls up, which would have alleviated the difficulty I had trying to attach them with flat glue dots, but still think it's a gorgeous card that my MIL will like.

Marge, this is lovely! It's so lacy and feminine! Those "doodle parts" are so neat--I've never seen them before. I love how you added the pearls to them for that extra special touch!
