I go to Christina's site on a regular basis, either to learn something new or just to remind myself how to do certain things. She is adding newer cards to her blog on a regular basis, so if you haven't had a look, why not pop over and see what she has to offer in the way of card-making. I have found it to be an invaluable source of inspiration and ideas and it is generally my first pit-stop before I start making my cards, especially at the moment when I have lost my 'mojo'.
So onto the card that I made for my Mum and Dad.
If you follow the tutorial on Christina's blog, you will get the same or similar type of card. I put silver ribbon with flecks of silver on the top left hand and the bottom right hand corner of the card. This picture also shows the envelobox that I used for the card. There are roses and carnations used on the card and to put a little colour on the card I used yellow roses as my Mum loves them. I sprinkled the flowers with some glamour dust to give them a bit of sparkle.
Yellow is most well-known as a symbol of friendship, however, they can also represent joy, new beginnings, intellectual energy, happiness and lightheartedness.
This is a segment of the envelobox that I made for the card and I put a little corsage with yellow and white roses.

I hope that you like the card I made for my Mum and Dad, I know that they loved it which is the best that I could have asked for.
