Special Card for Mum

When I went to the Craft Den on Thursday night for my weekly scrapbooking class Lynne showed me the card that the Wednesday evening class had made. The card was made using the fab "Hougie Board" and is called a "Stepper". I love them so off I went yesterday to pick my board up.

I had a lovely, but busy day yesterday. It was the last fittings for my Bridesmaids so I didn't manage to do any crafting yesterday, but I decided to do some today. It is my Mum's birthday next Tuesday (8th June) so I wanted to make her a special card.

She is the best Mum ever and this is what I came up with for her........

I used my Tilda blowing bubbles. I have cut round the image so I have made my own bubbles with Glossy Accents. I used my new Tim Holtz "Vintage Shabby" papers which I got from the Craft Den also, they are just gorgeous.

I added a couple of prima paper flowers with a pearl pink brad and cut the leaves with my MS punch.

I have to say that I am really pleased with this card and I am going to busy making lots of "Steppers". It is so easy to make using the "Hougie Board".

Hope you like it!
