Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mother's birthday. In honor of her birthday, I am sharing the card I made for her. Here it is: 

 When I saw the "Best Mom Ever" stamp in the May Simon Says Stamp kit, I knew I wanted to use it to make my own patterned paper. I added the heart and dot stamps to give the pattern a little interest. It's hard to tell from this picture but, I used clear embossing powder so in real life there is a nice shine. The flower and leaves were fussy cut and the center part of the flower is popped on a foam dimensional.  Here's a closer look.
This is just one of the ten cards I made this weekend and just one of the 20 cards I need to make by the end of the month.  I'll be back with another card later this week.

This is so pretty! You're really making good use of those kits. Ten cards! If I made ten cards in a day I wouldn't clean up between them or I'd never get done. I hope your Mom had a lovely birthday!
