Mum's Birthday

  Hi and welcome!  Today's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was designed by Kim Singdahlsen and I used it to create a birthday card for my mum.

The floral image was already stamped, stenciled and die-cut which saved a heap of time.  I used the colours from the image for my background.  I also found the embossed brickwork panel as well as the hot-foiled sentiment, so this card really only involved assembly.

Both the vertical and horizontal panels were embossed with the Subtle embossing folder for some additional dimension.  The floral image was adhered to the brickwork panel and then I used foam tape to add it to the card base.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Please check out the fabulous cards made by the design team.

Karren, I find stenciling so therapeutic so why not have a few on hand for lovely cards like this? LOve your orange roses and how you managed to add all those fun panels from Kim's Sketch! Can't wait to give it a try!
