Birthday Card for Mom

Hello fellow Crafters, Happy Friday! I have a very special card to share with you all today. I made this birthday card for my mom:)



My color inspiration came from Cupcake Inspirations. Loved this color combo. Ok I know that my Apricot color is a little darker then the one on the color pallet but hey, it stills works :)lol.



I added lots of pop dots to give my card dimension. I don't know if you can see from the picture, but the paper has a very pretty metallic shine to it. The pretty paper rose is from my stash. I made it a few weeks ago with the Rolled Flower Dies from My Creative Time.


I used the DCWV "The Peachy Keen Stack. I Love this paper stack, I got it for sale at Joann's at the beginning of the year, and Im just getting the courage to use it up:)lol. Gotta love pretty paper:)lol. 


Kept the inside of the card simple. 

Products used: 
Lime Green Pearls from my stash
White Twine from my Stash
Sheer Ribbon from Stash
Paper Stack: DCWV The Peachy Keen Stack 
Celebrate Good Times 
Stitched Leaves Dies 
Stitched Doily Die
Vintage Stitched Label Dies
Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies 
Floral Sentiments 
Rolled Flower Dies 




I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
