Happy birthday Mom

The card I'm sharing today is a birthday card I made for my Mother. It was quite a lot of fun to make since it included a couple of favourite things - Basic Grey papers, outline stickers, and fussy-cutting.

I have a stack of outline stickers and rarely use them but having given them a try a couple of weeks ago for paper piecing, I think I'll be using them a lot more. To paper piece this card, I took 2 identical copies of the flower sticker and then laid them on 2 different subtly patterned papers. I fussy-cut the pink flower and then adhered it using pop dots to the blue layer. The leaves come from a different set of outline stickers and are adhered to the same blue paper and then cut out.

It isn't apparent in the photo, but the scrolled sentiment is actually popped up in the center to give the card even more depth. The sentment itself is off another outline sticker set (in this case, the letters were silver so I coloured them with a black Copic).
