Birthday blooms :)

Today's post is dedicated to my Dearmost Mom.

"Very Very Happpppy Birthday Ma...Love u soooooo much".

This is a CAS card i made for her..

White CS is embossed  and this front panel is matted on a base White CS. To the front panel, Twine is wrapped at centre of it and on it added vellum flowers. This is the first time tried using vellum to make flowers. And these are colored using Distress Stains- Rustyhinge, Mustard seed, Milled lavender and Dusty concord.

CLD ivy florish diecuts are added around the flowers. Scalloped sentiment banner is added on top of a layered diecut. The sentiment banner is embossed and distressed at edges for the sentiment to pop up.

Butterfly is embossed with Black Ep and distressed with tumbled glass for that slight blue tint.
Few pearls are added for the final touch.

Hope you like it.
