Birthday Card for Mom

This birthday card for mom is sure to warm up her heart with bright colors and happy flowers. When it’s filled with your handmade love, she’s gonna love it.

I’ve made this card for my mom. I wanted to make a happy and bright-looking card so I chose bold, bright colors. Instead of using a birthday greeting, I used number stickers to spell out the date of her birthday!

Then I filled the card up with a hand drawn smiling sun and some happy flowers. Yes it does look a bit kiddish, but that’s the inspiration I had when I was creating this homemade mom birthday card. ;-)
