For My Wonderful Mother-in-Law




This is the last of my Mother's Day cards.

The paper is from the Bo Bunny 6 by 6 pad Garden Girl.  The only exceptions are the layer the sentiment is on with the soft pink, and some vanilla cardstock in the flower center and for the card base.

The ribbon is from Celebrate it by Michael's.

The flower was cut from my Silhouette and I spent some time jazzing it up.  I used a stylus to make veins in the leaf, did lots of inking on all the layers in different colors, and then curled the petals up.  It has so much dimension.  Even my husband seemed impressed when I showed him (and that is hard to do, believe me.)


The sentiment was built using a couple SP & Company Mix N Match Sets: Kids, and Family.  The inks used were Close to Cocoa and Rich Razzleberry from Stampin' Up.

Hopefully she likes it.  I really do have the best mother-in-law so I wanted her card to be really nice too.    She doesn't read my blog at all so she will be surprised, and luckily I don't have to mail it.  Honestly if I did that it would completely ruin the flower!

I'm glad to be done with all 3 of my Mother's Day cards for this year.

Thanks for looking :)

Amber
