My first dome card

I've been wanting to make one of these dome cards for ages, but never got round to it because I thought they would be difficult to make. I was wrong .. they're so simple and I'll probably have a bigger problem making the box for it than the actual card!! lol

It's my mum's birthday on Friday and every year I have to come up with something different from the year before .. I think I might have pulled it off with this one as she won't have seen one of these before .. so the next big hurdle is the verse .. I have to find a different verse every year too and it has to be one that's guaranteed to make her blub!!

Back to the card .. the flower is from one of the Cupcake Crafting cd's and is actually seven layers deep. The corners are done using my good old fashioned light box and a stencil I've had for centuries!! I put a piece of acetate behind the oval and finished it off with a few pearls.

Happy Birthday for Friday Mum .. love you loads xx
