Happy Birthday Mum

My dear Mum is one whole day older than my Dad....
I did this card with a couple of my classes,
and loved it so much, I thought Mum might too.
It's based on one by Jennifer Timko.

The colours are so delicate...Stampin' Up! Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, and Garden Green.
I tinted the Flower Trim with a Stampin' Up! Marker Pen in Melon Mambo.
The inks and marker pens can be used to colour so many things,
including ribbon and embellishments.
One of the many advantages of Stampin' Up! products is the colour co-ordination.
It takes away such a lot of the time-consuming process of putting a card together.
The chevrons were created by using marker pens to colour the stamp,
rather than using a single ink pad.
The doily was formed into an oval shape by cutting it in half,
then overlapping the two halves, which is then covered with the inked oval,
and the greeting banner.
