Happy Birthday Mum

 It has been quite a while since my last card creation ! Most of my crafting stash had been stored away while we had work done on the house. We still haven't finished but it is now reasonably accessible and I found some stamped images to colour and did a lot of blog hopping to stir up some creative juices! It is rather daunting getting back into the card making seat after so long....
 I opted for a House Mouse stamp and as it is my Mum's Birthday today, an avid quilter, I went for this one (can't remember the name and the stamp is in a box at the bottom of a pile of boxes!). Coloured with Derwent coloursoft pencils and then layered up with papers from K&Co, Amy Butler Belle...who also designs fabrics for quilting etc. The flowers are from my stash (Prima), then topped with buttons and pearls (Prima pearls). The ribbons are from Craftyribbons and the sentiment is a Whimsy stamp.
The sketch is from the challenge at Cupcake craft challenge and I will also enter the card into challenges at:-
Creative Friday -'Anything goes'
The Play Date cafe -'Colour combo' pink, green & blue
Stampavie challenge - 'lots of layers'
House Mouse & Friends challenge - 'I love you 'sew' much'

I have a few coloured images so will hopefully find some more creativity and come up with some more card creations soon !
