A Birthday card I made for my Mom

I made this Birthday card for my Mothers 90th birthday this past Saturday. I call it the forever card as it is made on a 5x7 canvas panel.  The background is painted first with acrylic paints. I then cut out various flowers and positioned them on the panel with gesso. I Used a filigree stamp and a white gel pen for drawing, writing and highlighting. I also used a gold leaf pen to highlight parts of the flowers. lastly I added some lovely lace, a rose button and a cute little butterfly. On the back of the card I wrote a special sentiment for my Mom. The card rests on an easel in which I painted gold. Mom loved it!!


  1. I love it really love this card. What a sweetheart you are doing this for your mom. Lovely idea and it turned out beautiful.
    So happy I found you out here in blog land.
    Getting to know you is such a blessing.
    Got to get going so I can make it to Austin on time.
    When is my next post going to be ready..lol
