Birthday Card for Mom

I started my day with every intention of cleaning up stamping room since things are everywhere. It is way over due for a massive clean up. I started winding up this roll for ribbon that I have had forever and decided it needed to be used right now! I hate that!

Mom's birthday is coming up and I did need to make her a card anyhow. I also just got an order of Unity stamps that were calling me so I created this very special card for her. This stamp is geared more to the scrapbooker then the stamper and challenged me to make it work for a card instead. I decide to make it legal size measuring 9 1/4 " x 4".

Stamp set used from Unity UK-167* Greatest Of Friends. Paper was Lime Green (LI). Bazzil Turquoise. These are not colors I normally would put together but they perfectly matched the ribbon from Michael's. I used Colorbox "frosted White" then went over it with seafoam embossing powder. I cut out a tiny picture of mom for center of flower using a 3/4" circle punch. Other items include Prima flowers, brads, Fiskar scallop punch.

Now I really really need to gear myself up to clean the room, anyone want to come and help?

Thanks for stopping by, have a super evening!
