Good Morning Magnolia

Today is my mother’s 95th birthday.  Not only is she 95 but she is healthy and lives (fairly) independently.  By fairly I mean she lives in a little cottage by herself in an independent living facility.  She is the queen of the place and everyone knows her.  She is truly amazing.  I thought this card was appropriate for her because she is like a rainbow of color wherever she goes.

To make this card I first stamped the background using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Then I took different colored scraps and cut pieces that are 1/2″ wide.  The colors I used are Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Gorgeous Grape.  I just realized I used every color in the Brights family except Melon Mambo!  I adhered these strips to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using a die from the Stitched Rectangles set.  I popped this up using Dimensionals.

Lastly, I cut the word Happy from the Merry Christmas die set in Basic Black and stamped the worth birthday from the stamp set called A Wish For Everything.

Happy Birthday, Mom!  I hope your day is as great as you are!
