Mom's Birthday Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you the card I made for my mother for her 73th birthday. My mother is and always will be my best friend. She is a wonderful, caring, thoughtful, crafty, giving, beautiful, and God fearing woman. I remember when my brother and I were little we always said that she was our angel. Sniff Sniff, how cute is that... Anyway, this is my first "pop up" card and I love the way it turned out. I used different cuts from several cartridges, and of course, I forgot to write down all the details. Sorry...

I definitely need to use the Cricut to cut out the clouds next time, my free hand clouds just aren't up to par. lol  My mother loved the card and really thats all that matters, right? Below is a picture of the inside of the card. I really enjoyed making these flowers and I think they are sooo cute.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Wow! Your mom is definitely going to love this, and I know I sure do! :) I like that you made the front and the inside look beautiful... Most of the time mine are blank inside, so this is a nice idea! :)
