Wishing You A Very Special Mother's Day!

Hi there and Happy Mother's Day to you! And for that matter...Happy Aunt's, Grandmother's and 'Every Woman That Makes a Difference in our Lives' Day!

This very special Mother's Day card is for my Mom. She is an inspiration to me and my love and respect for her knows no bounds. This picture of us was taken a few months ago at a bridal shower for the beautiful lady my step-brother is going to marry next week.

I began with this bright, beautiful dp by Harmonie and chose all the cardstock colors to match the dp. The decorative edge is cut with a Spellbinders die as well as the circle, scalloped circle and decorative tabs at the top and bottom of the sentiment.

There are so many layers of love that went into this card. The sentiments are from Verve and the flower image is from the Sweet Peas set by Flourishes. It's colored with Copics on the front and stamped on the inside as well.

I added lots of stitching, pearls and a beautiful triple bow topped with a beaded center.

Here's a look at the details on this card.
