Stampin Vacation Challenge

I just put this card together this afternoon. It is for my mother's birthday (March 16) but definitely had to get a jump on things with impending labour just around the corner! I also HAD to get it done in order to submit it into the Stamping Vacation Challenge- Pick 3!! I have chosen to go with using 3 of the same embellishment (buttons), using at least one button, making it a birthday card & using glitter (on the slippers)- OK OK,so I made it a pick 4!! Whatever (as my daughter would say!)hahaha!! I think that these challenges really get your mind working on a creative note!

The image is from Prairie Fairy Designs. I colored her with watercolor pencils & baby oil- with blending stumps from a tutorial given by the Prairie Fairy on her blog! Check it out, it is my new favourite way to color!!!! Paper, brads, & ribbon are misc. Buttons are CTMH as is the Birthday Sentiment (set called Card Chatter). I also used a Stampin up punch for the bottom of the sentiment on the front of the card & a 3 way Fiskars corner punch for the corners of my lady's image! The flowers are Prima Flowers from my all time fav. crafting store Micheals!!

I sure hope my mom likes the card as much as I do!!
