Hello friends! Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my mom's birthday on Monday! I have a package all ready to send her and another gift on the way that I think she will absolutely love!

I made this card using the Picadilly papers from Basic Gray - I love the rich colors of these papers and always find BG perfect for paper piecing! I stamped these gorgeous Waltzingmouse roses (from the Roses in Bloom set) four times on a red pattern and cut the larger one out twice. I then cut the center of the roses and popped them up using some foam tape to give them dimension and used some large pearls for the centers. I finished the card with some coordinating leaves and a stamped tag.

Thanks for visiting!

Supplies: Stamps - Roses in Bloom (WMS), DP/Decorative Brads - Picadilly Collection (Basic Gray), Tag Die (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug, Cardstock - Vintage Cream (PTI), Ink - Basic Black (SU!), Pearls (Martha Stewart), foam tape
