Happy Birthday Mum (and a note...)

Before I show you the card I've made today... I have some exciting news! But... I'm not going to tell you. It's killing me not too, really! I've been sitting on this for weeks - and let me tell you I just don't have that much patience! But I've kept it this long, so I'm going to keep my trap shut for just a few days more... however... if you come back on Sunday, I promise to share!

Until then, I hope you like my newest card!

My Grandmother turns 93 tomorrow and this is the card my Mum asked me to make for her.

I used papers from First Edition (j'adore paper pack) layered on dark blue card and paired it with this gorgeous poppies image from Aurora Wings and a computer generated sentiment (font: callie hand). I coloured the poppies with my promarkers (lipstick red, berry red, poppy red, slate, pear green and marsh green). I kept the embellishment light, with a punched butterfly and a few pearls.

I'm submitting this to:
