Special Mother

Hi everyone...I'm one of those very blessed people who still have my mother, and I love to create cards for her for no reason at all! She loves flowers, and since they seem to be the theme this week for several challenges, I couldn’t resist jumping in. I would like to enter this card for the CASology Challenge and for my 2nd submission at Less is More Challenge.

And, here is my card:




I used my brand new Clearly Besotted stamps to create this card. I embossed the flowers in white, and for a change, I colored the flowers in Lilac (my mother's favorite color).

So, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh, my goodness, Barb, I think this might be my new favorite card of yours. It really took my breath away! You are so blessed to have your mom, but it works both ways; how blessed she is to have you for a daughter, and such a talented card artist besides!! Hugs, Darnell
