A rose is not just a rose...

Hello Journey Friends,

Today's a special day!  Today is my Momma's birthday!!!
She doesn't live near me anymore so it's sad I can't celebrate her birthday with her.  So while she's having fun with my Dad and enjoying her free time in retirement, I sit here thinking of the time I'll be able to visit with them again...

I sure hope she has some fun times today!  I decided to make a card for her that would incorporate some of our favorite things...music, flowers and....YELLOW!  I hope she likes it!  
To create this card, I stamped the Vintage Notes background onto Buttercream cardstock and onto Limeade Splash cardstock using a mix of Kiwi Slice, Limeade Splash and Electric Lime inks.  After that, I rubbed a bit of Bubble Gum and Banana Cream ink onto the edges.  I also splattered some Gold Silk, Electric Lime and Sour Lemon Silk onto both stamped layers.
Next, I tore a piece of vellum and rubbed a bit of Electric Lime ink onto it, then wrapped some natural thread around the vellum.  I added it to the stamped layer in a collage fashion.   The rose (Summer Rose) was created using Sour Lemon Splash and Limeade Splash and  Kiwi Slice ink.  I wanted a few yellow posies (yellow roses and flowers are my Mom's favorite) so I diecut some Spring Bloom Mini flowers and colored them with a DTP method using Bubble Gum and Banana Cream and Lemon Drop ink.
To finish off the card, I cut a small tag using the Tag Elements die set from Whip Cream cardstock and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from a retired set.  I layered this panel onto Whip Cream cardstock then mounted onto a Lemon Drop card base.

Thanks for popping in to check out my Momma's birthday card!  I hope she enjoys it!

Happy Birthday!!!
Love you Mom!!!
