Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom's birthday is in a few weeks and I thought I would make a card for her.  For her gift, I am giving her movie passes so that she and I can go to see the new Sex and the City movie when it comes out in May.  She and I watched all 6 seasons of the TV show and saw the first movie together.

My mom is a natural blonde and she has a siamese cat named Jasper, so I made Tilda & her cat look like them.  


Inside:

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with cat, Cat, Sentiment Stamp by Inkadinkado
Patterned Paper: DCWV Summer Stack
Misc: Nesties, Adhesive Pearls, Bic Mark it Markers, Ribbon from stash, Gelly roll white pen,

Challenges:
1. Magnolia Down Under - birthday
2. Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
3. Creative Card Crew - going dotty
4. Pile it on - pastels
5. By the cute and girlie - spring
6. Rosie & Dee's - spring
7. SPCC - color combo (teal, green, white) and recycling (I used the "reverse cut from the nestie on the inside of the card instead of throwing it out - does that count?)
8. Simon Says Stamp - a touch of green
