Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Sunday!!!  It is for me.  Today I leave for 4 days at a Spa!!!  I'm going to a wonderful spa for my vacation.  It is up on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Maine.  It is beautiful!!  My sister and I found it last year and decided we really needed to go this year.  When not getting facials, pedicures, massages, we will be relaxing by the pool or shopping at the nearby outlets (yes there is a small stamp store too!!).

Before I leave, today's theme for the Stempeltraume challenge is a to make a card with inner life.  I took this to make a card decorated inside and out.  I decided since I would be decorating the inside, I would make my Mothers Birthday card.  Her Birthday is in a few weeks and it's nice to know I have it done and I love it.    I bought this digi from Fred She Said for the card.  I love her work and she makes the most beautiful flowers. Above is the outside of the card.  Here is the inside.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

The Beary Scrap - Sketch - I love this sketch.  I knew this would be perfect for my card.  I loved that the sketch was made for me to use my heart punch around the card.

The Shabby Tea Room - Tag - The Happy Birthday is a tag.

Die Cut Dreams - Pearls & Pins - I love both and they are fitting for this card.

Wild Orchid Crafts - Pearls and Pins - I love Pearls and the pin was a great touch on this card.

Everybody Art - Hand made flowers - I tried different flowers on this card and didn't like the look so I cut out multiple pansies and layered them for a 3 D look on the flower for the bottom.

My Time to Craft - Jeweled - I put pearls, and glitter on this card.  I hope that is considered jewels.  I think it does.

Fab & Funky - What "eva" - Cute cute cute theme name.....My card defiantly fits this theme.

Gingersnap - Punches - I love my around the page heart punch by fiskars.  It is so easy to use.

Totally Gorjuss - Flowers - I love flowers.  On this card flowers are the main image and I cut one out to put as am embellishment.

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes - I love this theme!

Paper Cutz - Tags - My Happy Birthday is a tag.  Normally I would do this but the sketch called for it and I like the way it looks on this card.

Crafty Calendar - Blue and Flowers - I love Blue!!  I usually can find a way to use it on most cards.

Prairie Fairy Fun Friday - Embossing - I love embossing.  I embossed the DP behind the image on this card to make it a little more elegant.

Drunken Stampers - Circles - I tend to put alot of circles on cards.  I have the circles around my image and the saying on this card.

Penny's - Happy Birthday - This is going to be my mothers Birthday card.  I hope she likes it.

Southern Girls - Anything Goes - This is their 1st challenge.  You should stop by and check them out!

Thank you for visiting.  Thanks to everyone who leaves me a comment.  I love reading all of them.
