Happy Birthday Mum

It was my mum's birthday on Friday. I thought I'd make her a card that was a bit different from the norm this year. My mum loves hot chocolate and chocolate in general so I thought I'd make this mug shaped card in to a frothy hot chocolate card. The papers are by Hot Off the Press. The flowers I made using a die cut by Marrianne Designs
in my Cuttlebug.
The stamp on the tag says "All you need in life is a friend who has chocolate" which is from a set by Inkadoo.
Inside the card I put "or a daughter who has Gooey Chocolate Brownie Cake!" We'd made my mum a birthday cake using a Gooey Chocolate Brownie recipe. Then we spread chocolate icing over the top and decorated it with mini eggs and chocolate buttons. Very squidgy but delicious! Mmmmmm.
