Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday :) This card was inspired by my sweet Stampin' Up! friend, Tamra Davis. I love So Saffron, and my mom's favorite color is yellow. I made this at Tamra's house when I was in North Carolina this past week. We returned home late last night. Tamra has a laser cutter and SU! has agreed to let her sell acrylic shapes that match SU! punches. I purchased 3 dozen from her :) Doesn't it look cool behind the butterfly? I bought some to go with my curly label punch, scallop oval, modern label, the butterfly...you may be seeing them a lot on my blog! If you are interested, contact Tamra. Anyway, I loved this card. Thanks, Tam!

This is such a beautiful card, June! I love how soft and soothing it is. What a nice touch to add the embossing to the dp, and the acrylic 'shadow' is nice too. I bet she'll sell a ton of those! Your mom is sure to love this card.
