Happy Birthday Mom

Once a month my mom, 4 of my cousins and myself get together to play poker-keno. I know, I know, I'm really not that old! We have a really awesome time and we are guaranteed to get at least that one day a month together. We have been doing that for over 20 years. Well if its someone's b-day we make a cake and get a gift for them and since I'm trying my hand at making cards (for about 8 mths off and on), I make one for everyone's b-day. This month is my Mom's b-day and she loves to garden so I made a shaped card. Check it out!
I used my gypsy to design the shaped card using the Walk in my Garden cart. I cut the image at 51/4 inches using the shadow feature and then cut the image again at the same size not using the shadow feature to create the layered look. I used my nestabilities to make the scallop for the image. The Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms. I added some bling as the holes and doodled with my black gelly roll.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
