Mother's Day

Mother's Day has come and gone. My day started with breakfast in bed from my kids and then they showered me with all kinds of handmade goodies (which are my favorite kinds of gifts from them) ~ cards, a bookmark, a candle holder, pictures and an address book. We spent the day together, went to visit my MIL and then my parents came over. It was a lovely day!

I already had my Mom's Card done, and needed one for my MIL. I came across this beautiful flower digi stamp drawn by
Ninab on her blog and knew this is what I had to use. I followed the weekly sketch from Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Challenge blog, because I thought it was perfect for this image.

I chose a yellow color for the flower since MIL's sorority symbol is a yellow rose. For extra interest, I paper pierced the upper corner of the flower image as well as two corners of the sentiment.
