happy birthday mum

Today's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is an easy one. Use three shades of blue! 

This is a card that I made for my mother for her birthday. If you look carefully, you will see three different shades of blue. Click on the pictures to see some better detailed images.

The papers that I've used are October Afternoon ~ Report Card: Bus Route, Science Fair and Hot Lunch! On one side these papers are schooly themed but I prefer the pretty patterns on the other side which could be used for just about anything.

The image is an oldie which I've never inked up before Magnolia ~ Tilda with Rolling Pin. She kind of suited my Mother! (hope she doesn't read this!) I coloured her with copics and added lots of stickles.

For the background to Tilda, I stamped out the Magnolia Recipe Card stamp a few times on different pieces of October Afternoon paper, inked up the edges, added some stickles and layered them. I used some little letter stickers for the word 'mum' and edged them with stickles too.

Then I decided she needed another background behind the recipe card as the papers clashed a bit, so I cut out a piece of card in the shape of a rectangle and die cut the edges with my Magnolia ~Doohickey Die: Tilda's Lace Border. I was please that it all kind of lined up at the end of it!

The 'happy birthday' sentiment is a rub-on.

I am going to pop this in at the following challenges:

'glitter': Created By Hand and Stampavie & More 
'birthday': Anonyme Scrappere
'my favourite things': Just Magnolia (Magnolias, copics, stickles, pretty papers)
'flowers': Fairy Tale Challenge
'bling it on': By the Cute & Girly
Thank you for looking.
