For Mum

Yaaaay! My Peacock card was Top 3 at Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge #178, so a big "Thank You" to their lovely DT.

A quick post tonight as it's very late, but here's the card I've made for my Mum's birthday on Sunday

I stamped the lattice on brown card, and laid it on red card. I stamped the flower ring, coloured it with my AP and markers, then fussy cut it out and laid it on 3D pads on some wood effect card cut with a Framelit.I fussy cut some foliage and added them under a chipboard heart covered in red card that was embossed with gold word "Mum". The finishing touches (that you cant really see in the photo) were the mini pink gems in the flower centres.
