Happy Birthday Mum

Well yesterday it was my Mum's birthday and I hope she had a very happy birthday. I always try to use a Mo's image for her cards as they remind me of myself as a little girl, the one I used last year on this card was probably the closest to me lol. But I always used to dress up our cat and push her around in my pram, in fact my mum had to get me a new pram as Kitty scratched the inside of my first one to pieces lol.

My mums favourite colour is blue so I am always on the hunt for new blue papers, imagine my surprise when I found this kit on my birthday with mum's favourite colour and my favourite flower. I have used a shaped card front and I quite like the effect. This is a large card for me as I tend to stick to small square but I enjoyed the change. I have also tried paper tolling or paper piecing as inspired by Mariska, mine looks nothing like hers but I am pleased for a first attempt and will definitely be doing this again.
