This birthday card starts off with a white card base.  The pink panel, Pretty in Pink card stock from Stampin Up, was embossed with the Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder.  The floral image is from Stampin Up's Bloomin Beautiful stamp set.  The petals were colored with Copic markers R20 (Blush) and R22 (Light Prawn) and the stem and leaves with a Chromatix marker (Grass 2).  I used a die from Cuttlebug's Red Tag Sale font set to cut out the image and I added a pink bow to the top.  The word celebrate is from part of a sentiment in My Favorite Things' a la modes Time to Celebrate stamp set.  I inked up this word using Stampin Up's Pretty in Pink ink and cut it out using Stampin Up's word window punch.   Lace ribbon and three mini brads are the finishing embellishments.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms including mine! 
The hydrangea image on this card is a stamp image from Rubber Stampede.  I stamped it onto watercolor paper and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I colored it in with some Marvy LePlume markers and finished it off with a ribbon bow.  The word "Mom" is an image from the Gina K. Designs stamp set called Lovely Shelf.  The completed image was cut and also matted using a few Spellbinders Labels Eight nestabilities die.
