Stippled Blossoms Birthday Card for my Mum

Today is my mum's birthday and last night I realised that I had not made her a card yet.  Her Birthday present was going on a cardmaking retreat last weekend and to be honest it had slipped my mind that her birthday was this weekend (I know, how awful to forget your own mum's birthday).  So last night at some silly hour I put my mind to making a card using my current favourite set called Stippled Blossoms from Stampin' Up!   I also decided to christen my new oval framelits and use one of the gorgeous Tea Time Trinkets (the coffee cup).  Can you see it hanging from the Build-a-Brad.  My new favourite embellishment. 

Here's a close up of the business going on in the corner.  I have lace gathered behind the build-a-brad that has a lovely large pearl stuck in the middle and hanging from it is the cute little cup which can be unhooked and put somewhere special for later.

The only colours used here are Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.  This set is a two step stamping set so I "stamped off" the bottom layer of the flowers and then used full strength ink for the top later of the flowers.  It's a great way to get more colours without having to buy more ink pads.

I finished the flowers off by adding a few of those teeny tiny pearls I have heaps of because I never knew what to do with them being so small.  I think they look pretty clumped together.

Mum loved her card and I hope you do to.

Happy Stamping
