Happy Day!

Today is both my mum's birthday and also World Card Making Day! :0) My mum loves all shades of the colour purple so I went with that for her card. I have stamped a bella on to pearlescent card and coloured her in with Whispers Strokes Brush Markers. This bella actually looks like my mum, although of course my mum does not have stick arms! ;0) I have cut her out using an oval scalloped punch and mounted to the pearlescent purple card using 3D foam pads. 2 shades of purple organza ribbon have been tied in a bow around the card. The message panel is also mounted with 3D foam. I have added little gem stones into the corners of the card to finish. Sadly, the pearlescentness doesn't show up very well in the picture.

I have also made this gift card for her as she wants some shoes as a present but needs to buy them herself. The card is simply made by stamping the Doodlebug flowers and butterflies then colouring them in using Coloursoft pencils. The greeting is made using rub-ons. I have mounted this panel using 3D foam pads on to some purple card then mounted to card blank itself. I really like this stamp set by Doodlebug.
