Happy birthday

Even though I seem to be quite a lazy crafter lately, it's not the laziness that bothers me. I simply don't find the time, or the energy, to get lost in papers, stamps and patterns.
As I'm not a morning person, getting up and being on time for my internship is a torture, and when I come home in the afternoon, I usually take a nap, only to wake up in the evening and see the day has gone. There's still time to cook a little something, but the rest of housework piles up and waits for the weekend to come.
I never thought work can be so tyring, and weekends can pass so soon, but I guess it's about time to enter the real world. Blah.

Nevertheless, I managed to have a crafting weekend and get some projects done. Among them, a birthday card for mom. I found this wonderful pickpoint pattern a while ago and finally had the chance to use it. I decided to sew it with soft beige and white shades, and combined it with pearls of the same colours.
In the center of the stitched frame, I put a couple of 3D roses and two punched butterflies.
For the background, I used a transparent paper with white roses, which I decorated with a tiny golden sticker.
