A Scorpio Birthday-Happy Birthday Mom!!

Happy Saturday dear blogging friends!!

Well it was my Mom's birthday last's been a VERY hectic much going on!

I'd like to share her card with you today...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I'm still working through Magnolia's Zodiac 2014 collection...
this is Scorpio Tilda...
 using Crealies Create-A-Card #9 I cut out the card center and mounted it on another die...
Go Kreate #380005 that I cut in half...
 to make a card a little larger...more space for
side view...
 close up of Scorpio Tilda...
I broke out my distress ink to colour with...
I haven't used these in so long but I did have fun...I sure DO need to practice...
 the pin that I made using beads, shabby seam binding, flowers and a butterfly charm...
 the sentiment is a Whimsy stamp...
 closer view of the flowers...
 computer generated sentiment tide on with ribbon...
this also keeps the card from springing apart...
So that's that for my Mom's Scorpio birthday card!!
