Mothers Day with Retiring Blooming with Kindness

Mother's Day is coming up so I decided to go ahead and play along with SUO Challenges as this weeks challenge was to create a Mother's Day card. I also decided to play along with The Friday Mashup  who's challenge was to use a retiring product and the sketch below, it worked out great! I just love the flower it this set. I certainly will miss it.

So, here's what I made:
The photo certainly doesn't do this card justice but sometimes that's just how my pictures go... :(

  1. Oh, this is so pretty! Love the blossom with the use of the wooden heart embellishment- perfect for Mother's Day!! Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges :-)

  2. Hi Stephanie, what a pretty card! I love the subtle colours and the way you've used the Blooming with Kindness blossom in the background. I'm sure that, in person, this card is even more stunning. Thanks so much for joining us this week for the Friday Mashup.
