Mom's 90th Card

We've had such a busy week this week culminating with Mom's actual birthday yesterday. We had the big party on Saturday which I'm going to scrap some photos of eventually.

I can finally post the card I made in such a rush in the end. Had a mental block for a few days as I wanted to do a special card but ended up with paper,paints,stamps etc covering my table and a bin full of rejects. I had to settle on this one which she said was lovely but I think it's not very good at all.

I used a wooden block fuschia stamp and rollered my brayer over my rainbow stamp pad and lightly rolled it onto the stamp. I used this faint image as my background on a 8x8 scalloped edge card in the top r/h corner. I then cleaned the stamp and applied the stamp to the rainbow pad making sure the leaves were blue/green and the flowers red/yellow. I stamped onto spare card 3 times using my watercolour brush pen to pull colour from the edges into the images, then dried cut these out. I arranged them overlapping the background using foam d/s tape. I had some papermania fairy stamps too and stamped them with the same pad, cut them out and arranged. Oh I nearly forgot the little stars and dust addedto some of them too. I used my broderie anglais punch to cut a bordered strip and stuck the papermania paper ribbon in the centre. The lettering was from my Christmas diecuts and a stamp from an Art Journey set.
