As is true every year. . .I always want to make an extra special card just for Mom for her birthday. It needs to be something pretty and feminine that she will love. My gosh, it is difficult to believe, but Mom will be 91 this year! I just returned from a long and wonderful visit during May and the first half of June, and I am happy to say that she is just as spry as she has always been. She always was able to walk my legs off on any mall shopping trip.
For her card, my creative juice have been fermenting for quite some time while I was busy making other cards. I had definitely decided that somehow I was going to use flowers on her card by using my new Stampin' Up Botanical Builder framelits that I had purchased in the early spring and somehow had never gotten around to using them! Shame on me! Take a look at my finished card that I finally decided upon, as well as the finished inside to coordinate with my outside creative design.
