Happy Birthday

I made this card for my mom's birthday which is tomorrow. We can fruit together every summer and when I first saw this set previewed I knew I had to have it.





I stamped and painted the jar and daisies on water color paper, then trimmed it out. The centers of the flowers are a gold colored fun flock.  I really love the large size of these images. This was a fun card to put together. Canning season is almost here!

This is a beautiful card. Those flowers look so realistic in your watercolored jar. This is probably my favorite stamp set so far.

This is great. I love the "water" in your jar but what I think I really like is the patterned paper that reminds me of vintage wallpaper, the gingham, and the lace. It all combines for a very fresh yet vintage-y look. Love it!
