Mother's Birthday Card

My mother (she is in her 80's) has a birthday coming up in January.  I thought I would get it done so I have it in the mail on time this year.  I saw this stamp awhile ago and just had to get it for her card, you see my mum still does crafty things, she is heavy into Quilting. (and boy does she do some nice stuff)

Stamp is Kratin' Kimmie Lavender The Quilter
Paper is Cosmo Cricket  Mini Deck Material Girl -also some from the 12x12 pack
Ready set Chip from Material Girl as well. ( first time I have ever used these very nice)
Colored with Copic's

Here is a close up of the quilt  I embossed it with brown sugar and colored a few squares with copic's
Oh ya I paper pieced the quilt on her lap.  The inside of the card I used a Heritage Farm stamp and EK punch.

I am safe posting here now as she doesn't have internet.  So if you know her please don't tell.  Let me know what you think.  I love to get your comments.  Take Care and Thanks for looking.
