One Happy Mummy

Today's card is one that I made especially for a workshop that I had a few weeks ago. My lovely hostess, Michelle, really wanted a a shabby chic kind of card. Now anyone who knows me, knows that my style is more clean, simple and balanced... so the complete opposite lol.

Well I tried my best, I did some research and came up with this little number. Thankfully Michelle and her friends were all very lovely and said how much they loved the card... I think I believe them :-)

I actually used four different stamp sets for this one, but they all seemed to go lovely together.

 Isn't the little hummingbird gorgeous. He comes from the set called Elements of style, and he just stamps so beautifully. I have also used the large French Script background stamp. This is my new and favorite stamp set at the moment. I'm really looking forward to using it on my candles this year.

Now I know this one says "Happy Birthday" but I did make another one, in Riding Hood Red and sent it to my Mother In Law for mothers day (Mothers day is the last Sunday in March in the UK). But still to this day she hasn't received it. I have no idea where it's gone and wonder if the postage wasn't enough and maybe it's got held up somewhere... or maybe the postal worker liked it so much, they kept it to send to their own mother!!

So I just wanted to say to Val... Happy Mothers day and so sorry it hasn't arrived yet!!!

Have fun,

  1. Beautiful card Chlo. These are my favorite stamp sets.

  2. Well this is very special. I adore the colors and that wonderful torn edge work. Those 4 sets have been put to great use. Well done!

  3. This is a very beautiful card and the colors look great together. Happy sunday :-)

  4. Very pretty card! I love all those shades of blue together.

  5. What a beautiful card, Chlo! I love the raised hummingbird and colors.
    I hope your Mother-In-Law has received her card by now. I sent a card to a recipient in Germany a while back and it took 6 weeks for it to get there. Usually it only takes about a week or so, I'm not sure why it took so much longer this time. I'm just happy it finally made its way to Germany. I cross my fingers your card will still show up too!

  6. Gorgeous! I love the color combination you used.
