Latticework Birthday Card

The colors come from Color My Heart Dare and the beautiful Blossom papers X7196B. Here are the colors for the challenge. I chose to make a card for my Mother who is turning 93 this month. The colors are:

Mom loved working in her flower beds and vegetable beds so this is what I picked for her! The latticework and background along with the butterflies and flowers make for a summer-like birthday card for my Mom. 

The card is 5x7 and cut from the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge page 16. The butterfly is from the Artbooking cartridge page 62. The flowers, vine, and scalloped circles were cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge pages 39, 35, 62. The stamp for the flowers is Pretty Petals C1599 and the inks are: 
  • Sunset stamp pad Z2191
  • Hollyhock stamp pad Z2128
  • Lagoon stamp pad Z2195
The embellishments are Sparkles Z1752, Junebug Puffies Z3038, and a flower from the Brushed Assortment Z3013.

I have to run to get to the Post Office! Her birthday is this week!!
