Happy Birthday Mom

I CASED this card from splitcoast stamper tdk100601. Here's a link to her card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1642447

I didn't have the bench, so I had to alter the card some. I used the SU Stamp Set Long Time Friend and retired SU paper, Flourishes. Also, I didn't have roses to use, so I used the SU Butterfly Wings Embosslits Die and spread the butterflies out over the card. Here's a complete list of materials in addition to the ones mentioned above(everything is SU unless otherwise noted): CARD STOCK: Creamy Caramel, Always Artichoke, Pretty In Pink, Very Vanilla. Little Leaves sizzlits die, Scallop Trim Border punch SAB, Finial Press Embossing folder, Watercolor pencils and blender pen, Nestabilities Oval and scallop dies.

I'm going to give this to my mom for her birthday this month. Thanks for taking a look and thanks tdk100601 for the wonderful idea!

Oh, Hoppy Day

This is a card that I found a few years back and decided to change a little (sorry that I don't know who to give credit). I needed a card for a man, and it's really hard for me to do masculine cards, so I went with cute.
