Happy Birthday Mom

Today would have been my Mom's 71st birthday. I bought this stamp set just so I could use this orchid, its just like the orchids mom had. Mom grew beautiful orchids of all colours with the blooms sometimes lasting 9 months! This card was also for a stamptv colour challenge to use the colours wine, yellow and kraft. If you haven't visited stamped smiles before, I've talked about Vicki and her fabulous site, you should head on over to her blog Stamped smiles she's giving away blog candy. She has an awesome site with great tutorials and gorgeous cards!

Paper: bravo burgandy, summer sun, kraft, whisper white
