My mum's 80th

Can't believe my mum's 80 in a week's time.  This card was inspired by Sarita who's blog is a must see.  She has a tutorial on her blog for the lotus flower which I've made for this card.  Be warned - you have to be in patient mood to do this.



It's a dull day here so I did a flash photo of the flower for a more accurate representation of the colour.

I can well imagine the patience required to produce this flower but well worth it. Please pass on my Birthday Wishes to your Mum when she turns 80. Lynne M x

This is so elegant Carol. The simplicity of the white background and then the beautiful lotus flower is quite stunning. Happy Birthday to your mum.... she's sure to love it.

OMG Carol, this is AMAZING!! The intensity of the colour of your flower is stunning. Time consuming to make I know but soo worth the result. That flower centre is so beautiful as well.
Your flower is drop dead gorgeous, I absolutely love it! I'm sure your mum will love this too,
Thank you for your kind mention as well Carol,
Love Sarita xx

I love this card. I tried the rolled flowers that are so popular right now for my Mother's Day cards this year. Now I want to try to this one as well. Beautiful and so refined!!!
