Birthday Card for Mom

My mother will celebrate her 65th birthday next month and I decided to make a special hand-made card for her. :)

This was my last creation out of Crate Paper's Random collection kit. I was able to make 6 layouts and 5 cards. Lovely!!!

Three-layered flowers of Prima, with a brad on the center. I outlined mini-dots on the biggest flower using Ranger liquid pearl in baby blue. The outer portions of the card were also applied with liquid pearls in gold and white opal. The top flower, on the other hand, was inked using Ranger distressing ink in tumbled glass.

The "65th" chipboards were first applied with gesso. They actually had a design that didn't fit my card, so I covered it up with gesso. Then I embossed them in yellow embossing powder, sprayed with Maya Road's iridescent pearl mist and dried with heat gun.

Lastly, my ever fave Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch as added accent to my card.

Have a blessed Sunday. :)
