Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all you wonderful mommies are having a delightful day! I wanted to share the Mother's Day card I made for my sweet mom... She loves purple, flowers and anything pretty. The fern on this cut brings me back to being a kid, she always had them.
 The base of the card and the eyelet layer were cut with Elegant Edges. The wagon, flowers and other images are from Kate's ABC. Once again I HAD to cut the flowers, and butterfly from an old book-just love how that turns out! The flower pots and fern were cut with that wonderful penalized paper from Hobby Lobby. Even after you color it (I used my alcohol inks) the shimmer is still there, it's so pretty! The wagon is topped off with some vintage seam binding I dyed as well.
Here's the inside of the card,once again more hand dyed book flowers and seam binding. I love how cute and ruffly the seam binding is when it's gathered.


Have a very very blessed and restful Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to you too!!! The card is perfect for for today, I'm sure she will love it! My mom also loved ferns, and roses, geraniums, violets, herbs.

Thank you Stacy and she did. It was hard doing it right under her nose, so glad I was at Susan's recently!
