My Mom's Birthday Card

Happy Friday! Yesterday was my mother's birthday and I made her a card using Laura's beautiful sketch:


The winner of Card of the Week will win a spot on the Design Team of 2 Sketches 4 You! Ha, why not try? Here is my take:



I wanted to create something cosy autumnal. The gift for my Mom included some tea, so I had an excuse to use my favorite little stamp set, PTI's "Tea for Two" and the additions set again :) That paper is Pink Paislee. Here is a close-up of the little tag:



After creating a lot of CAS cards recently, I had a so much fun layering, inking and stitching here!

I hope you are all well! Thanks so much for visiting and have a fab day everybody!

Hugs,
Vanessa
