April Showers Bring May Flowers To Mom

It is time for a brand new challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  And the new challenge is to make a card/project for mom and add flowers.

My card is made with paper from K&Company.  The flower is cut from the FLORALS DECOR cartridge.  All of the cuts are inked in liked colors cuts.   All of the bling on teh card is from the Paper Studio.  

 The border is created with a punch from EK Success and is inked in a pretty teal.  I used two different ribbons on the card to pull out the colors of the flower.  The label is cut with a Spellbinder's die and the sentiment I did on the computer.  Additional gems were added to the label and the border.  

My mother has macular degeneration and at this point in the progression she has a hard time seeing colors, especially if they light or muted.  So when I made this card for her, i knew she would enjoy it so much more being able to see these bright colors.  

Please join me and all of the wonderful Design Team members in a celebration of our mothers with flowers.  I look forward to seeing your projects over at My Sheri Crafts.  Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you will visit often.
