Mum's Birthday Card

I needed to make a birthday card for my Mum for Saturday & I thought I would combine it with a couple of challenges. The 1st challenge I used was A Spoon Full of Sugar. They want you to use swirls on your card this week. Well I think I have covered that one lol!!! The next challenge I have used is ABC Challenge. Their DT member Helen has created a sketch containing an X. Why not pop over & see for yourselves. I think Mum will really like what I have done with her card.The swirl bp is a double sided scrapbook card & is available from my shop. The blue swirl & paisley paper is from Pollycraft. The pink stripe paper is Urbanlily & the circle is cut from a sheet of Basic Grey. The zebra is a download from Tinker & Co. The flowers were off a diecut sticker sheet by Basic Grey & I punched holes in the centres to go with the sketch. The black ribbon is from my stash.I took the sketch through to the inside of the card & added another image of Kingston the Zebra. x Clare xx
