Happy Birthday Mom!

Even though I know my Mother won't see this card here on the internet, (not a pc person), I thought I would share it with you! Today is her Birthday and she is 72 years young! Please don't tell her I told you that! LOL! Actually, I don't think she would mind me sharing how young she is!

My mothers favorite color has always been blue and every year I struggle to make a card with blues! Blue is one of my least favorite colors and funny thing is that Pink is too! But I decided to go out of my box this year and went for the Pink and green! Except for some slight flaws that just make it look hand made, I think it came out o.k! What do you think? Please leave me a comment and give me your opinion. I would love to know what you think of this card.

This is my first time making a card with my new Large Deckle Nestibilities! Also, I used the small Oval Nesties and a Cuttlebug Slider Die for the word Mom. I just love that set! I used Bazzill Basics Card Stock, with Basic Gray Designer Paper. All inks are Versacolor Pink and Green Tea! Pink Grograin ribbon that I bought at Hobby Lobby!

Stamp Credits: Mom~ My Sentiments Exactly, Tulip~Penny black, Happy Birthday~Studio G.

Well, Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I will be able to have something to post for you tomorrow! Have a great day and a great weekend! Happy Stamping!
