A Geordie Birthday

Today I have made a card that my Geordie friend Pat, had asked me to make for her Mum's birthday, as she calls her "Mam". Here it is, I hope she likes it?

I am entering it in to these challenges :

The sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday,

from The Paper Players tic tac toe, I chose the bottom line,

Less is More want us to use something RECYCLED,

and lastly, House of Cards want us to ADD A BOW                                                     
I embossed some pink card with diagonal stripes, and I recycled the ribbon and bow from a birthday present I had 2 weeks ago (and it luckily matches the colours of the card and stamped roses). I then stamped the sentiment on a die cut label and grouped some fussy cut roses and leaves underneath it.

Supplies :
Card - Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, pale pink and white base FMS
Stamps - Stippled Blossoms and Papermania
Inks - Black, Strawberry Slush, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, and Gumball Green
Tools - Big Shot, Sizzix Textures, SU Window Frame Dies, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras - 3D Pads and Pearls

I'm in hospital for my treatment tomorrow so I may be AWOL for a few days, but I'll be back soon
