FWF - My Mom's Birthday Card


Happy Friday all! I kind of just realized that I hadn't shared this card I made my Mom for her birthday. I didn't want to share it before I gave it to her, then I got sick and missed her party...anyway, so here it is now! This is also my post for this weeks Friends with Flair on the Unity blog!
I used a couple different KOTM stamps. The bird one is from the February 2011 Kit, and the sentiment is from  September 2011 Kit. It has been a while, so I'm not 100% sure, but I think all of the papers are from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pads.
I used some different pattern paper to paper piece the bird. I tried to cut it out a little wonky on purpose, but it only shows at the top, so it really just looks crooked which bugs me, but you could see it a little better in person hiding behind the flowers!
And speaking of flowers...didn't those come out cool?!?!? I am kinda proud of them, cause I came up with them all on my own! I just cut some felt in a circle, then did a slightly crooked and wavy spiral cut around it, and rolled it up starting on the outside. Added a couple of pearls to the centers to finish them off, and then cut some leaves by hand to tuck behind them. I might try to do a tutorial sometime on how I did the flowers.
I also used a lot of Tim Holtz distress ink on all the edges. 
Finished off with a couple of stick on pearls under the bird to accent the swirly things. 

Since it is Good Friday as well as Friends with Flair Friday, I also wanted to share this picture from my other blog...feel free to click HERE and read more if you're interested! Have a blessed weekend and Easter!!!
