A Very Special Birthday

My mum will be celebrating her 80th birthday in 2 weeks time. I wanted to make her a card that would stand out from the other cards she will hopefully receive. Thats why I decided to make her an easel card. It also gave me the opportunity to play with my Grand Caliber and grand nesties for the card as I hadn't used them before. The papers I've used are 1st Edition called Love Letters. I thought the Tilda stamp I've used was so appropriate. I have ordered my mum a cake, but I'm not going to attempt to put 80 candles on it lol! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I'm entering this card into 2 challenges
Totally Tilda Challenges - Challenge #44 - Happy Birthday
Midweek Magnolias - Week #6 - A very special birthday
