Birthday Card for Mom

I made this card for my mom's birthday. I have no idea what I'm giving her as a gift yet, but at least I've got the card done! I used some of my new Nestabilities - a classic rectangle (which I also embossed, though it's hard to see in the photo) and a scalloped rectangle. Gotta get my money's worth out of those things! I used SU's word window punch to punch an opening out of the black strip, punching it twice, side by side, for a window long enough for the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of white cardstock which I then centered in the window and taped to the back. The spots on the ladybug's back are traced with a clear spica pen, and the window is traced with that pen as well. I hope she likes it!

Stamps: Papertrey's Little Lady, Birthday Basics
Ink: Palette Noir, Sage Shadow
Paper: PTI white, Basic Black, Sage Shadow
Other: Nestabilities, stylized flower cuttlebug folder, word window punch, clear spica pen, dimensionals, May Arts ribbon
