Happy Birthday 'Mum'

Today's card I made for one of my friends to give to her Mum.
Joan is now in her 80's, and used to be a card maker herself. She
stopped making them a couple of years ago, but still loves to receive hand
crafted cards.
After die cutting the white panel with the stitched rectangle die and the corner die,
I attached it to the blue panel using 3D foam strips to give it some depth.

The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Framed Tags Two
Couture Creations A4 Embossing Folder - Tied Together
Die-Namics - Pierced Rectangles
Flower and Corner dies - Purchased from eBay
Birthday sentiment stamp - Free gift with Craft magazine
Mum - Computer generated
