Mom the crazy gardening lady

     Today is my mom's birthday and when I saw this crazy gardening lady I knew I had to use her for her birthday card this year.  My mom LOVES to be out in her yard puttering.  She has a big old magnolia in the front yard so I just had to create one on the card for her.  She's also a bird fanatic.  LOL
     The gardening queen comes from Art Impressions Gotta Garden Set.  

Art Impressions GOTTA GARDEN Clear Stamps 5000

     I used my Prismacolor pencils to color her and the birds.  The sky was inked with Distress inks and I pulled out LOTS of dies to create the scene.

Have a blessed day!
