Birthday Blossoms

Ever had one of those occasions where you need a card unexpectedly?  I spent the last few days at my Mum's and as always had taken a small craft kit with me so I could experiment if time permitted.  I had no intention of making any finished cards.

Then Mum reminded me that it was my Aunt's Birthday in a few days.  She is really poorly at the moment so I wanted to send her a nice greeting - but what could I put together? i had only whisper white card stock with me, a few inks and one stamp set.  It was one of my favourites from the new catalogue that I hadn't had time to play with yet.

I remembered a card that my good friend Fiona Whitten had made with this set and so I set about casing it.  (Case means to copy and share everything!)  I managed to scrounge a piece of Pool Party card stock from my mum and this is what I came up with...

Birthday Blossoms

I kept the colour way and basic layout very similar to my friend's  but added a couple of extra embellishments.  I was delighted with how it turned out and I trust my Aunt will be pleased too!  Thank you Fiona!
