Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Hello there! Hope you're well today!

I can't believe that there is only a week until Christmas! Where has this year gone? That also means that it's nearly my mum's Birthday...and this year its a big one! I'm pretty confident that my mum doesn't read my blog and so I'm going to share her Birthday card with you....

Mum loves licorice allsorts...well to be honest she loves any kind of licorice! So I decided to make her a Birthday card inspired by her favourite sweets! I've used pinks, yellows, browns, blacks and white for the colours....I suppose I should of added a splash of blue too! I've used plain coloured papers from my stash, some ribbon and lace and some shiny sticky gems. I made the little allsorts from paper and added a glitterly 60 too, all of which I attached with sticky 3D pads to make them stand out.

The fab layout comes from Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday....another lovely sketch that I will use again and again. Check out the SSW blog to see all the gorgeous DT'll also see Arlana's fab Christmas tree!

We've got some surprises for mum on Sunday, I won't write about them here yet just in case she does read my blog! Its going to be a lovely day!

Thanks for stopping by today,
