Birthday card for mum

Here's the birthday card I've made for my mum's birthday next month, she has a little Westie called Charlie.

I started with a A5 card blank and covered with purple flowered paper from papermania rich purple, leaving a 0.5cm gap. I printed the westie digi stamp from Bird Cards and the birthday sentiment from the same site. I changed the colour of the sentiment and added the word mum. I cut them out using spellbinder nestabilities and backed with light purple. I added a striped panel and ribbon then attached the toppers.

The large flower is made from tissue paper and mulberry paper, I cut 3 different size circles using spellbinder nestabilities, the used a corner rounder to make the petals, layered them up and added 2 buttons to make the centre, to finish it off I added silver glitter glue to the edges of the largest petals. The small flower is some I had in my stash, finished with a small button.
