Happy Birthday to my mom

Today is my mom's 80th birthday.


My brothers and their families came from B.C and Montreal
to visit this past weekend and we had such a great time!


I really wish we lived closer together -- they are all so fun and wonderful!

I wanted to share the card that I made for her birthday.
I was inspired by the Butterfly Reflections Ink June Mood Board to create my card.


Isn't it fun?
I decided to use my new Flourish stamp set from Concord & 9th to make my card.


I stamped the flowers and leaves in PTI's limeade ice, aqua mist, 
tropical teal, berry sorbet and pure poppy.
I stamped the centres to the blue flowers in versamark and heat embossed
them in Zing! red embossing powder.


I trimmed a strip of navy blue cardstock and heat embossed my
sentiment (from PTI's KIS: birthday) in white.

We all celebrated together on Sunday, but Jonah, Sage & I will be driving
to Winnipeg this afternoon to join my twin brother and his wife
to take my mom out for supper.
You can never have too much celebrating, right? ;)
Thanks for looking!
