Betty's Birthday

My card today is for my mother-in-laws birthday today. She is 82 bless her but still believes she is 60.  She is a very happy but pleasantly confused lady who always loves my cards.  Well she loves everything actually and always has a smile on her face.

The first challenge I am entering is The Cuttlebug Spot which this week is to be inspired by an advert.  The advert I have chosen for this challenge is this


and here is my card


I have used this gorgeous House Mouse stamp and coloured it with Promarkers.  The papers are Stamping Up and Papermania.  The Sentiment is Paula Pascual and has been glossed.  The flower, button, gems and ribbon are from my stash.

I am also entering it into these challenges:

Simon Says - Animal Antics
Top Tip Tuesday - Flowers
Passion for Promarkers - Let it Shine
Crafty Catz - Flowers
Wild Orchid - Let's get sentimental
Crafts 4 Eternity - Polka Dots
