This weekend, my mother-in-law will celebrate her 80th birthday! I love making cards for her because she really appreciates the work that can go into making them. Although my usual style is clean and simple, she prefers the more elaborate cards I make, so I wanted to make her something special and I am really happy with how this turned out.

The Aztec Gold Sunflower stamps (now retired) are one of the first stamp sets I purchased from Heartfelt Creations. I LOVE sunflowers and I am so glad I picked this one up. I stamped and cut the flowers using the coordinating Blossoms Two die from Spellbinders and then I painted the sunflowers using a couple different colors of Silks acrylic glaze. I edged the flowers with some stickles for a little glitz and added Cacao Elements to the centers.

The sentiment is also a Heartfelt Creations stamp that I had received as part of a class I took a couple years ago at CKC. I edged the top and bottom with a line of pearls from Want2Scrap.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment here and on the other designers' blogs in order to be eligible for the $25 Heartfelt Creations gift certificate. Once again, you have until midnight Friday, September 27, 2013. You're next stop is Mary's blog. You're going to love what she created!
