Card: Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom's birthday is coming soon! I made a card for her. 

This card was inspired by 3 challenges. First, the bouquet. 

This time Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge is Bouquet. I was thinking of giving my mom a bouquet of flowers. Instead of picking up some from garden or buy from florist, why not I make a card with bouquet on it! *light bulb lid up!* ;-) I used Maggie Holmes Open Book Floral Ephemera Leaves. 

Then, Sequins.  This week's Just Add Ink Challenge #259 was "Just Add Sequins". I want something sparkly and shine. So, just add sequins!!!

If talked about sequins, I definitely thought of Sparkle & Shine Challenge. Sparkle & Shine Challenge FOUR's inspiration badge was a sketch.

From the sketch, I thought of making a shaker card. To match with the bouquet, I used gold shimmering frame by Maggie Holmes' Styleboard from Crate Paper.

I mixed the sequins with gold, green and pink. They included Sparkling ClearClassic Christmas Mix and Shamrock from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Shake! Shake! Shake it off!

  10. This is truly very pretty! I like this shaker card that you made for your mom. I just love this kind of DIY stuff. We just reserved the best birthday restaurants NYC for my mom’s birthday and would like to decorate the venue using DIY décor. Do you have any unique décor ideas for me?

  11. This card is truly amazing! Thank you so much for sharing it here. I am going to host a small birthday party for my mother. Looking for some good venues in Chicago to host a small gathering as even budget is not that huge.
