Wonderful Mum

This one is for my sister to giver her mother in law.  She wanted something special, so I went for a shaped easel card and decided on black and white with silver mirri, which will match her MIL's black and chrome living room.
 Apologies for the photos, especially the reflections in the bottom one, but you know how hard mirri is to photograph!
I made the card with Spellbinders Grand Labels Four, the flower with Spellbinders Anemone, and the flourishes with a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz die.
The patterned papers are from Papermania's Forever Friends Black and Gold range, the wonderful definition stamp is Anita's, the mum stamp is Papermania Vintage Notes and the happy birthday stamp is Personal impressions.  The stamping was done onto black, Clarity coated card, which is lovely and glossy, and I heat embossed with white powder.
To embellish, I added black pearls and clear gems.
