Happy Birthday Mum

I wanted to share this card with you as I have made it for my Mum, whose birthdays' tomorrow.  She'll be 92.  I wanted to make her something special, basically cos she's my Mum.  I had seen a couple of these boxes on Facebook so I watched a YouTube video http://youtu.be/Zlxtfyi6h8Q, which I found one of the better ones, and most useful as the lady 'Dawn' does it in real time, so you can craft along with her!

The flowers on the cake were from Sweet Lilac, whom I must say I was a little dubious of ordering from, but once again ladies from one of the groups on Facebook I belong to assured me that they were very good and I was pleasantly surprised when I ordered the sample box at 11 o' clock one evening and within two days the parcel arrived.  Excellent service, will definitely use them again.  

The flowers on top. Of the box are of course my old faithfuls and made from a Spellbinder die (blossom 4 - I think), oh and the leaves underneath are from an ivy die from Di'esire (think that's how you spell it?)

I was really pleased with the way it turned out and hopefully my Mum will be too, that is if she doesn't open it upside down!!!
