Special Birthday

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all well and looking forward to Easter.  Apologies for my absence over the last few days but I have had a busy time.  It was my wonderful Mum's 70th birthday at the weekend.  I had family come to stay for the weekend and we went out for a celebratory meal on Saturday night.  A good time was had by all but no time for blogging.  Anyway, I have the next six days off work so hoping to get lots of crafty time in.

Today I thought I would share the card that I made for my Mum's special birthday.


I used mainly white for this card together with gold mirror card.  Several dies were used including a marianne die and a free champagne glass die that I got with a magazine.  I embossed the background with my swirly folder and added lots of flowers and bling.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all the lovely comments and support that you give me.  Hoping to get round to visiting some of your lovely blogs this evening.
