A PUMPKIN SPICE BLOG HOP...a happy birthday card


hello my dear friends, 
i am happy to welcome you to our first
 blog hop of 2013.

as you might know i am one of the new ladies in the team and...i am so delighted to be part of this awesome and so very friendly group.
we had to make a project that made us think of the new year. my mother's birthday is on january 1st and that is the very first thing i think of when we are welcoming a new year.
 "Happy Birthday mami, happy birthday to you"

and because i looove making cards, this is what i made for today's hop.

Mom's Special Day
Jan. 1st
 the beautiful paper i used is from a basic gray 6x6 pad called Lucille.
i got it at the "shop pumpkin spice".
 i hand cut the flowers from another paper in the same collection. i then dusted them with some diamond dust (i am getting better at it). don't they look pretty?


 the sentiment and the card base were cut using my electronic die cutting machine: the cricut expression and i used the lyrical letters cart for the font. the brown insert strip is where i put the gift card.


and an entire view of the card here.
(remember you can click on the pics for zooming)
