Birthday card for my mom

Happy birthday, Mom! Good thing she doesn't look at my blog. The color challenge on SCS this week was to use these colors: Cool Caribbean, Whisper White, and Basic Black, so I came up with this design, featuring the flower from Stampin' Up's Looks Like Spring and the flower punch and word window punch. For the background, I used two awesome classic stamps that it's hard to go wrong when paring these two, Print Pattern and French Script, both by Stampin' Up. The tiny, hard to see sentiment, "to my mom" is from Stampin' Up's All Year Cheer III. The handy cutter kit tool roughs up the edges easily on the featured stamp image papers.

This was my first time to use the velvet ribbon from my Flirty ribbon pack. These ribbons are so gorgeous that it's sometimes a challenge to use them because you want them to last forever. So my special occasion to break open the "good stuff" is for my mom, and I know she'll love it.
