Muse Monday - Mom's Birthday Card

My mom has been my most loyal reader since day one. Whenever I post a new update, she’s one of the first to like it (she hasn’t quite figured out how to comment yet, baby steps) . She’s my biggest supporter and believer in me and it’s her birthday today- Happy Birthday Mom!! I love you and hope you have a wonderful day! XOXO

Now, onto the details. The inspiration for today’s card is one of my favorite pins to my card inspiration board. I love the color combination and the sparkle this dress has. Trying to find the same effect for a card was difficult until I stumbled upon this paper and knew it was what I was looking for. I’ve been wanting to use this inspiration for quite some time and I’m really excited by how it turned out. 

Don’t you just love how the copper embossing powder shines? It really makes the card. Reminds me of shiny, new pennies.

Paper: Vintage Cream (PTI), Peacock (PaperSource), Carousel (October Afternoon)
