Happy Birthday, Mama!

This is the card I made for my mama's birthday which is this Sunday.  We can't be with her this weekend, but fortunately our entire family was together for Thanksgiving, so we celebrated then.  We couldn't ask for a better mama!

On to the card...the bird's eye is actually a painted basic pearl.  Dawn Griffith has a great tutorial, and it's really a very easy technique.  The bird is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Here's what I used:

Punch Potpourri

Blushing Bride
     5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
     Scrap for Circle and Bird
Soft Suede
     5x3-3/4 Large Layer

     4-3/4x3-1/2 Large Layer

Soft Suede Stamp Pad

2-3/8 Scallop Circle XL Punch
Basic Pearls
Clear Embossing Powder (Pearl)

Have a great weekend!
