Happy Birthday, Mom!

Although it was actually on the 14th, we celebrated my mom's birthday today. She's a little under the weather, so it was just a quiet (okay, with a 4 and 1-year-old, it's never quiet, LOL!) get together at home and we'll take her out for some more fun when she's feeling up to it. Here is the card I made for her:


I based it around PTI's Lavender Moon color. I love a good lavender-y pink and Lavender Moon is lovely--I need to use it more often. It matched some patterned paper I had in my stash perfectly, and when I decided to use the gardenia flower, the color combo had created itself! The Labels 2 panel is embossed with a Waltzingmouse stamp in watermark ink. I also stamped a strip from WM's Text It along the bottom in Lavender Moon ink and did lots of shading with Ranger's Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to tie everything in together. I used a bit of Scrapper's Floss for the first time, along with some pearl trim and seam binding to decorate, and stamped the sentiment on vellum for a soft look.

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Damask Designs; WMS--Vintage Labels 2 & Text It
Paper: PTI--Rustic White, Lavender Moon, New Leaf; vellum; stash
Ink: Watermark; Staz-On--Jet Black; Memento--Tuxedo Black; Ranger--Victorian Velvet Distress Ink; Embossing Powder--Filigree Clear
Misc.: Ribbon--Etsy; Gardenia--Prima; Scrapper's Spool--Karen Foster Design; Pearls--Hirschberg Schutz & Co.; Border Punch--EK Success; Die--Spellbinders Labels 2; Corner Chomper

Jill, this is such a pretty card for your Mom. I'm sure that she loved it. I like the WM stamp that matches the Spellbinder's Label die and the addition of the flower, ribbon and pearls creates a really feminine touch.
