Happy Birthday

I made this card for my Mom for her Birthday. This was actually the maiden voyage of my Art Nouveau cart...I just had to have it...it's been sitting there ever since. Since my Mom loves hummingbirds...I thought...I finally get to use that cart! The layering is actually pretty simple for this cart...I was pleasantly  surprised. I thought...since I was using one cart that I've never used...let's break out Art Philosophy too. I've used that one a little, but not nearly enough. I've also never put 3D flowers on a card. Love how pretty it turned out. Thanks for dropping by...Lee-Ann :)


Recipe:

  • MME So Sophie paper pad, All Spice paper pad(just the brown striped paper)**
  • Glamour Dust**
  • Basic Grey pearls**
  • CTMH-Happy Birthday stamp set, Chocolate ink
  • Bazzill-Kraft cardstock and brad**
  • Cricut carts-Art Nouveau (hummingbird) and Art Philosophy(leaves and flowers)
  • Martha Stewart border punch
***all the starred products were purchased from DAT'S... my fav LSS**

This hummingbird is so sweet! My Mom and Dad love to watch their feeder with the hummingbirds. They are so tiny and fast. I might have to rethink this cartridge:)Your Mom is really going to like how special this card is.
