roses for a lady

Roses for a birthday lady
~ Ü ~

Not my mum, though. A friend requested a card for her mum's birthday.

Entering these challenges

The patterned paper was printed off a magazine website ages ago, but I never got round to using it. Another oldie here is the sentiment stamp which I've used rather sparingly since getting it early last year.

Thanks for stopping by!

it's your day

Something simple for a change . . .
~ Ü ~

 The maroon pearl card looks and feels simply luxurious simply embossed, but it's a pain to photograph . . . The butterfly has been cut from the same card, and given a silver edging and a gem centre.

flower burst

Flowers are bursting into song this week
~ Ü ~

A flower burst tag for these challenges

The background of the tag is gingham fabric with a diagonal rip, from which flowers burst through. The pink silk blooms are leftovers from CNY decoration, and the smaller ones are rolled paper roses, which have been misted and inked, all with a pearl bead centre.

Mother's Day

for my mum . . .
~ Ü ~

The main image is an orchid digital print from the House Across the Bay (yes, mum loves orchids!). The text background is from an old paperstack by Papermania, and the sentiment is a new one by docrafts.

The sentiment is stamped with Perfect Medium and and Perfect Pearl for a bit of shimmer.
