How about a basket of flowers for Mother's Day? This card was created for a co-worker to give to his "sweet" mom yesterday.
I paired a Marianne Design Flower Basket (CR1208) with the Memory Box Primula Blooms die. After assembling layers of flowers and strips for the basket my fingers started to get a little gluey! Since her favorite color is purple I decided to use Lovely Lilac.
Happy Mother's Day was stamped in Lovely Lilac and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. Sponging around the edges was done in Certainly Celery. Three flowers were punched and rhinestones were added to the centers for a little accent.
I hope all you amazing mothers out there had a wonderful day as family is so precious. Mothers are the most important person and everything we learn starts with them. Mother's Day is always a difficult time for me. I spent the day in my gardens thinking about my mom and how I wish we had more time together. She will always be in my heart.
