Happy Birthday to Mom
There is a new challenge over at Caardvarks to create a birthday card. I was also inspired by the photo below from the Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab Blog. I was inspired by the green, pink, blue and yellow color combo in the photo. The photo also reminded me of a country living and homegoods, so I had to use fabric paper with a picket fence, add a little sewing, and use crochet flowers.
Note: I was a day late for the Tuesday Trigger, but I loved the inspiration, so I played along anyway!
Not only did I get to use some of my American Crafts Dear Lizzy fabric paper to make this card. I also added a making memories frame that I had been hoarding surrounded by crocheted flowers, which I am trying desperately not to hoard, and a little thicker action. You other crafting ladies know how hard it is to not hoard these lovely things!
Have a great night!
