Tri-Shutter for Mum

Today, I have another tri-shutter card to show you. These seem to have become my go-to card when I need an extra special something. I made this one for my wee Mum's 80th birthday in November.
I used some beautiful Haiku DSP for this one, teamed with the main flower image from the 'Upsy Daisy' set. To get the graded colour on the flowers, I inked the whole flower stamp with so saffron, two thirds with more mustard & one third with tangerine tango & then stamped on very vanilla card. I attached filigree & celery rhinestone brads to old olive ribbon & wrapped it around the front panel. The '80' (from 'Short Order Numbers') is stamped in tangerine tango, the happy birthday (from 'Think Happy Thoughts) in old olive & punched You can see the layers better here.
Update: I've added one more pic, so you can see the full layout.
Anyway, hope you like it. I'll be back with another tri-shutter later.
Inky wishes, Di
