CAS Card

I've had this stamp for a very long time. It may, in fact be the second one I ever bought, after the winter trees I used a couple of days ago. I'm not sure who made it as the writing has long since worn off the sides. It's inked up with colours I made up my self from left over bits in re-inkers.
The silk patch is part of a hand painted piece in shades of turquoise and violet. The Mum embellishment is mounted on card inked in the same way as the image, and edged with a whispers pen from the vintage assortment.
The sheer ribbon is from my stash as is the button in the centre of the flower. Silk flowers and adhesive gems are Papermania.
While making this I had thought it might make a Mother's day card - until I put my glasses on and noticed it says Happy Birthday Mum :). The base is a textured deckle edged A6 card in cream.

Hope you like it :)
