Another birthday card for the Stamp With Us challenge

This card was made as a commission from my Mum, to send to my SIL. I call it a commission but truly I don't suppose it is. It's just that seeing my Mum sending shop bought cards I felt guilty - I buy all this crafting stash (and my Mum adds to it for me from time to time) and she's shopping for cards elsewhere. So anyway, I offered to make her a bunch of cards for sending at least to her close friends and family. Hope she likes this one.

And I've got it finished just in time to be my second entry to the Stamp With Us challenge this week - fitting the Birthday theme. Ingredients are all Stampin' Up! with the addition of Nestabilities.

Stamp Sets: Bloomin' with Beauty, Cause for Celebration, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock:Blush Blossom, Whisper White, Cameo Coral
Ink: Cameo Coral, Markers, Versamark
Punches: Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Scallop Edge
Other: Heat & Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds

The card is valley and mountain folded to create the front panel (leaving space for a verse or sentiment on the back). The lines next to the scallop edge were created running a bone folder down the groove in the Paper Cutter.

That's all for today folks.
