Happy Birthday Mom!!

Good Monday Morning!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!!

I have been working on my Mother's birthday card and I have to tell ya that it's hard when we have very different taste!!!  So as far as style goes I went with my taste and colour wise I selected a more vintage look using greens/beige/brown.

I masked out Tilda on a bench with Jasper the cat sitting beside...although poor Jasper got overwhelmed by the flowers...LOL!!!

Here is Mom's card...

front view of card...
this is Tilda with Dot-bow from the With Love Collection 2013 (I printed "Happy Birthday" on the heart with a black Zig pen)... sorry have forgotten which collections Jasper and the bench are from... 

the card opened up with computer generated sentiment...

Sneaky Tilda...again can't remember which collection...
Well that is my Mother's birthday card...I'm off to get ready to take her for a birthday lunch and give her the card and gift...a day early...her birthday is tomorrow which just happens to be my good friend Christine's also!!
