Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday and I thought the challenges at The Friday Mashup and Create with Connie and Mary would make an elegant card for her.
The other part of The Friday Mashup is to use a Window Sheet, which fit in perfectly with the sketch!
I can't believe that I am just now opening this pack of Gold Foil Sheets. Doesn't it look delicious embossed?!!!  I also just got some silver and can't wait to open that one now.  For the inside of my window, I stamped the tree off on scrap paper and then stamped it on my cardstock. I did the same with the snowflakes, which are almost impossible to see in this picture, but they are there! :) The "Make a Wish" stamp is from a new stamp in the Occasions Catalog, Perfect Pennants, which you can order from beginning January 3rd.  I then filled the window with gold glitter. I sometimes go a little overboard filling my windows with it...I just love making shaker cards!  The little banners are made from Sale-a-bration items, Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating banner punch. Aren't they adorable!  Oh, and the sequins are also from the Occasions catalog. They come all sewn together so you can use them in a strip or separate them like I have done here.  

Stamp Sets: Banner Blast, Endless Wishes, Lovely as a Tree, Perfect Pennants
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy
Tools: Pretty Print Textured Embossing Folder, Banner Punch
Accessories: Gold Foil Sheets, White Baker's Twine, Gold Glitter, Gold Sequin Trim, Dimensionals
