Happy Birthday To My Mom

My mom's birthday is in July as well so the party next weekend will be for her to.
I haven't had a card fight me as hard as this one in a long time! I had to restart colouring it four times and when I was almost done I noticed one of my dark pink markers had put a splatter on my stamp - right near the hair. I hadn't planned on fussy cutting this one but that was the only solution. 
I tried gel pen and white paint but the pink bled through. Yes, I admit I cursed in my head. 

             I hope she likes this card, I'm not totally happy with it.





After colouring my image and fussy cutting it, I mounted it on a circle and lacey circle die. I inked all the edges, paper included. The sentiment was stamped and cut out with a Fish Tail banner die and flowers and gems were added for a little bit of bling.
