Happy Birthday Mom

 photo mombday.jpg

Needed a birthday card for my mom, and this Freshly Made Sketch screamed flower in lieu of the circle element, so it was a perfect fit for what I had in mind.

I have been hoarding this Cut and Paste paper for a while, and decided my mom was a wonderful reason to use some :)  Added a flower and some leaves for my focal point and a birthday sentiment tab.  A few half pearls finished things off.

Having our family birthday celebrations this weekend (my brother's birthday is also in May), as well as some extended Mother's Day festivities.   Many wonderful reasons to celebrate :)

Thanks for popping by today and sharing a bit of your day with me.

Such a lovely combination of patterns and colors! I love the soft and feminine look with the trio of pearls and the lacy border strip. The sentiment looks just right on the kraft!
