A Birthday Card for Mom

Woo-hoo, it's the weekend.   What have you got planned?  I'll be taking pix of the items I made to donate for the American Cancer Society fundraiser.  They will be sold at a craft fair on Saturday, November 1 and I'll start posting them soon.  But first, I'll need to figure out how to use my new camera as my old one is acting up.   I can't take a pix with it anymore but so thankful I was able to take a shot of this card that I made for my mom's birthday before it went on the blink and could download it because I already mailed it to her.  Whew!

I've had this bamboo DP for quite a while and wanted to create an Asian themed card for mom.  This cutie patootie image is "Mieko" by Sister Stamps which I inked up with Copics.  In the actual image, Mieko is holding a stick of 3 yummy mochi.  I snipped the stick off, carefully cut around the edge of her hands so I could tuck the strings (carpet thread) under.  Her pet pooch is by Dandelion Designs.

Other fun ingredients used:
"Landscape" die by Mama Elephant from Island Scrapbooking
Balloon dies by C.C. Design
Glittered sentiment - by and from Island Scrapbooking
Grass stamp by Viva Las Vegasstamps
DPs from stash

Thanks so much for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!

I'm certain that this cheerful card made your mom smile. She must have a giant box of Karen creations by now....lucky lady! I think the bamboo background is my favorite part of this card. I works extremely well with the other expertly colored and cut out pieces.
