I was so excited to see Heartsong 47, or Jan ....or to me MOM....named queen of the week. Congrats ma-ma...do enjoy your deserved reign.
the worst part was I enjoyed as always all your cards so It was hard to choose for now one to do. But these pretty flowers here started my ideas going...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=153586.
I was going to do one of your pretty fancy ones with the well done bows you do so well, and saw these flowers so went with this one, after realizing this one had no bow....lol...but still had fun copying it...like the nice simple style.
I stamped with the 2 stamps on this set, colored the first with water markers and stamped over it in the black. embossed the white bg and added the dp to the right, with the ribbon. I liked both ribbons and couldnt decide so put them both on...they looked neat together. I had the sentiment stamp out I was using with another card and I noticed it would fit so well in the dp space so I added it. but then realized that the neat birthday blessing wouldnt fit over the ribbon like moms so added a colored and fussy cut butterfly to it instead, so it wouldnt cover the sentiment...and then putting happy birthday inside.
Today's challenge was to use glitter...so...hm....could I make a card with sparkles on it...lol.....you know me...I just HAD to join this challenge...I can hardly ever make a card without some bit of sparkle...it doesnt show up as well here but added it to the flowers and butterfly.
thanks mom for the inspiration...BIg HUGS and again...congrats...LYMI....and thank you all for the visit...:0)

Wendy, congrats on your mom's crowning of queen. I guess that makes you a princess!
I love this card. Love the beautiful pure looking fleur de lis embossing and the gorgeous cutout flower with the sparkles on it. Love the sentiment stamping on the pretty dp too.
