Happy birthday

Todays' card lies somewhere between lumbar punction and the thalamus.
I stitched the ornament in silver and red shimmering yarn, and added some 3D roses to complete it. Also, I used some pearls and rhinestones.
Thanks God I stitched the main motif a while ago, so I only needed to put the card together now. To make the card a bit different, I decided to make an easel card with matching pearls on the base of the card.
Combining papers and cutting takes time, too, but it's certainly better than making the whole card when I actually should be learning for my exam :) So, I managed to finish the card without major learning delays (well,almost) and can send it off to a very special lady this week.
You may notice that I've sent flowers about the same time last year already and the simple reason is: some people deserve to be covered with flowers every day.
Mrs. B sure is one of those special people. I got to know her as a wonderful, modest, hardworking mother and grandmother who welcomed me to the family with open arms from the very first day. In return, I decided to "adopt" her as my second mom.
I could easily go with her as mother in law, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. However, after so many second chances and broken promises I think I can say it was neither her nor my fault - and no reason to reconsider the adoption ;)
Birthday wishes will be written on a seperate tag, once I figure out how to put all the birthday wishes into words.
