Introducing: Willow, day two

First, I must wish my mom a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This was us back in the 70s with my mom! She looked amazing for having 3 kids in 4 years, huh?



Now here she is in 2011 - 5 children, 10 grandchildren, one grandpuppy.



Happy Birthday Mom!

(On to the release)
I have always loved moss and amethyst together. I thought that this die was a perfect size for this card. A few buttons threaded with some rustic thread, willow tree in white ink, sentiment in lavendar (SU!).


I love this designer paper I found in my stash. The striped paper had a hint of blue in it, so I grabbed some SU! ink and scraps of bashful blue cardstock to create this card. I added some droplets of stickles to the branches on the tree.
