Happy Birthday Mum

Hi there my blog friends. Today's card is one I made for my Mum's Birthday. She loves roses so I dug out my lovely Prima paper and Prima roses and came up with this.

The edges of the paper and the white Prima rose are inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I cut the centre from the card and the patterned paper with my Nesties labels 16 and sandwiched the acetate in between.

The focal image is a textured rub on, easy eh? A little stickles around the edge of the window for a bit of sparkle.

I added some very pale pink mottled paper on the insert so that it can be seen through the acetate window. It has just enough colour to give a nice contrast against the white centre panel.

So, there you have it. Easy! I'm entering this for this week's Our Creative Corner Challenge - Frame It!.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting,

Iolanthe x

Your card has a pretty, and cordinating look! The blue inside the frame really pulls the blue in the floral pattern paper out! thank you for playing along with us @ OCC. I hope that we see more of your work soon.
