Birthday card for mom

Wow, has it really been over a month since my last post? Yikes.

I just finished my mom's birthday card and got it in the mail to her Wednesday. Her birthday was Sunday (oops). Between school and my usual trial-and-error method of card making, it took me about a month to finish it.

It's my very first easel card, so I'm pretty happy with the results. The metallic papers came from my stash. The dimensional sticker and the gemstones came from Michael's. The white paper is from Cryogen.

I've really fallen for these Popcorn the Bear stamps. They are just so cute. I colored this one (from the Thanks a Bunch stamp set) with my Copics and added some sparkle with Stickles.

I'm looking for some challenges to enter, so stay tuned.
