Birthday Card for Mom

My mom turned 87 last week.  I designed this card for her -- since her middle name is "Rose", I thought this cardstock was appropriate!  I tore two different card stock designs from the Stampin Up vintage paper pack.  I then distressed the edges and attached them to the front of a vintage-paper cardstock.  I then cut out the rose designs from another sheet of cardstock, distressed the edges and attached to the center of the card front, using dimensional dots to give them a life.  I also added matching small pearls to the centers of the roses and highlighted the rose petals with my stardust glitter pen.  I found the gold plastic vintage fan in a package of buttons, so I removed the shank, put a scrap of lace trim underneath it, and attached it to the bottom of the card.  I think it balances the entire design of the card roses, papers, etc.  I stamped happy birthday and punched out, distressed edges and attached with dimensional dots. 

Let me know what you think!

  1. Such a pretty and thoughtful card for your mom's birthday. Mine turns 89 on the 4th next month, so I'm going to be getting busy designing one for her too. I love the roses on this.
