Happy Birthday Mum

Hi everyone, I'm back again to share the birthday card I've made for my Mum.  She loves poppies so when I saw this in the House Mouse project book I knew I had to use this decoupage and matching backing paper from the cd...

I don't do much decoupage when it involves me cutting it out as I find it aggravates my fibromyalgia but I was determined to use this one. I've made it into an 8x8 card, matting the backing paper with black card. I've also matted the image and the sentiment with black card, and added lace to the sentiment...
I've coloured some white flowers using a Promarker (poppy) and layered them up, adding a black card candy to the centre and some fern type leaves (Martha Stewart branch punch). To finish I added a bow using ribbon from my stash...

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
