For Nan

It's not my mom's birthday until the end of August, but as I was making some family birthday cards for my son anyway, I thought i'd make an easel card for Jake to give to her later in the year...

This lovely image is by Bugaboo and is called Rose Can. I coloured using my usual promarkers. I added the happy birthday sentiment (SU's fun and fast notes stamp set) and also added the little tag too.
The spotty paper is by Dovecraft (back to basics) and the green floral strip is by SU (tea party dsp).
I used a xcut border punch (sparkle) and a butterfly die which was free in a craft mag.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Kaboodle Doodles - any shade of pink
Lexi's Creations - use punches or dies
The Pink Elephant - use spring colours
Bearly Mine - anything goes
Sweet Stampin - scallops
Cute Card Thursday - butterfly kisses
Fab n Funky - spring colours

Thanks for looking xx
