It is a card I made for my mother-in-law that had her birthday last week (and we forgot) and has her name day next week (fortunately we have google to remind us).

I did not want to make a typical birthday card, so I chose a seasonal theme. What better than autumn, that is unsure whether to arrive or not? Last week we had some rain showers but this week is so hot that feels like August.

I used an old Sarah Kay stamp, Autumn Bliss backing paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, my Promarkers, stickles and Glossy accent(I don't know how I lived without it), Cat's Eye chalk inks and Tim Holtz's distressing tool for the distressing. I colored the flowers with Glimmer Mists and the sentiment is an old stamp with unknown origins.

Although it is almost invisible in the photo, the window behind Sarah is the highlight of the card as it looks like a real window (with the help of Glossy accent).



I will play to the following challenges:
