Happy Birthday flowers

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you had a good weekend. We had a whirlwind of a day on Saturday. The concert by Rick Wakeman was very enjoyable he talked about a few concerts we had been to in the past. Including an amazing orchestral version of the Six Wives of Henry VIII set in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace. On Sunday we both worked on more of the wedding stationery that is needed for the end of March. Some things can't be done till right at the last minute. Our daughter and her fiancé are just beginning to thrash out their plans for their wedding.

I treated myself to the March issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and the free gift was a Hunkydory paper kit. I used the kit to make a birthday card for my mum.


This is an 8" x 8" card made with papers and toppers from the kit. I added mats and layers,  some butterflies, pearls and a ribbon. The papers and toppers are so pretty. 


I added mats to the topper too and I cut the corners to match. 


I added some butterflies cut with Sue Wilson die. They matched the silver butterflies on the topper. 


Here is is the finished card. The orange glow is from the setting sun when I was taking the photograph. 

Have a great week.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
