Totally Gorjuss (DT) - For Someone Special

Good morning my lovely friends and fellow bloggers.... have we got a super challenge for you at Totally Gorjuss this week.  We'd like you to make a card for Someone Special.  This was such an easy one for me, as my dear Mom is having a birthday next week, so I made her a birthday card.

She loves green and red, so I stuck with the Christmas colours for this card and am sure she will love it.  This Tilda was kindly stamped for me by a friend, she's an older one, but such a sweetie!  I added some dimension glaze to that pie she's holding and lots of stickles on her wings. If you enlarge the image you may just make out those clouds in the backgroud. The stamp I've used for the ground is a local one from Great Impressions C036, purchased from Merrypak.  The ribbon, flowers and flat-backed pearls from my stash. The leaves were kindly punched for me by another friend.

Here's a side-view so that you can get a peek of the inside.  I just stamped a few stars down the sides and in the centre matted white card onto red cardstock, which I'll use to write my message.  Added a red metallic star in the corners.  Pity I didn't take a pic, but my pics always turn out blurry when I try to take them of the inside of a card... makes me so mad!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.  Please pay them a visit for all your crafty needs.  They have some awesome products in store.

As we'll only be back on 31 December with our next Challenge, I'd like to wish all our Totally Gorjuss friends a
