Happy Birthday Mum!!!

I made this card for my Mum's 66th birthday. I used paper and brads from Basic Grey's Green at Heart. I love the vibrant colours of this line. The stamp is another swiss pixie from the C.C. Designs spring set. These stamps are so adorable.

At Scrapfest 2009, I attended a Basic Grey workshop where the instructor had us place strips of different patterned paper side by side. I decided to try this technique on a card and love the result. We probably won't attend Scrapfest this year because my sister is getting married in October, but we really want to go!!!

Love Swiss Pixies!!!

I love this adorable stamp which I got with the Swiss Pixies Spring set by C.C. Designs!!! She is stamped on bella white paper and then cut out and paper pieced onto another piece of bella white paper that I sponged with summer sky Memento ink to look like clouds. The flower is sprayed with key lime pie glimmer mist and has green jewels in the centre. I took a Mother's Day card class at DAT'S, and Donna used pearls arranged similarly in the centre of her flower.

Hope that everyone had a Happy Mother's Day!!!
