Fabulous You - Happy Birthday to My Mom

When I received the new Close To My Heart Spring Summer Idea Book and saw the Fabulous You stamp (C1533) I immediately knew I had to have this set for my mom.  She loves birds and flowers. My Mother's birthday was on Sunday and I've been saving this stamp to make a special Birthday card for her.

I used the Chantilly paper for my card.  I cut the doily with my Artiste Cricut Cartridge using the Accent 1 <1> key.  Then I stamped the image in the center.   I used a combination of blending pen and ink pad along with our alcohol markers (Olive and Creme Brulee) to color the bird and flowers. I sponged the edges with Cashmere ink.  My favorite accent - Pearl Flourishes add a beautiful touch the card.

I used Sketch #21 from CAS(E) this Sketch.

I'm also entering this card into Paper Player's Tic Tac Toe Challenge #39.  
My Tic Tac Toe could be either Spring / Yellow & Green / Pearls or 
Pearls / Birthday / Pink & Green!
