An Early Happy Birthday to my Mum

Shhhhh don't tell her but this is my Mum's birthday card - luckily she isn't online but I had to share it before her birthday as I also made it for this month's challenge on the Penny Black and More  blog.  The challenge is to use Dies and Punches.

I also made this card for Week 13 of the 52 cards challenge which was to use something from Pinterest or online as inspiration.  I rarely go on Pinterest as I end up wasting so much time so I took my inspiration from one of my favourite blogs - A Scrapjourney.  I love how Debby layers up all her patterned papers and mats them all, plus she frequently uses photo corners - so this card is a little homage to her style. 

The papers used are magazine freebies, cardstock from Stampin' Up, the sentiment is Pink Petticoat, the corners are an Ellison Thinlets die and the punched butterflies are Martha Stewart.

I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers - main ones used are Almond, Blush, Warm Grey 1, Ice Grey 2 & 4, Primrose, Sunflower, Leaf Green, Denim Blue and Pale Pink.
