Happy 71st Birthday, Mom

Firstly, I'd like to say hi to my new followers and welcome to my blog. I hope you pop by often.

This is the card I made for my mom's birthday.  It was very much inspired by Julie who's blog I visit often.  She makes beautiful cards and I've admired her great talent for ages. 

I used a Sizzix embossing folder, Nellie Snellen corner die and the flowers were cut on my Silhouette.  I inked the flowers up with gold ink - unfortunately, it doesn't photograph well and looks very dark in the photo.  The gold mat has a slight sparkle to it which again doesn't show up in the piccie, but it's very pretty.  The sentiment was done on the computer using a mix of fonts.

A very classy card, the flowers are gorgeous, not mastered them myself yet and from my attempts, don't think I ever will.
