Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all my friends out there!  We are heading out of town to have a late lunch with my MIL and the rest of the family.  So this is quick today..........My card has been a work in progress for several days and thus missed the deadline for the CR84FN challenge this past week.  :(  Anyway, I love how it turned out and wanted to share it here.  I did use the sketch from Mojo Monday for this card as well.  Lots of layers but kinda fun to do after all the CAS cards from my last posts!  This is for my MIL and she will LOVE it!  She recently showed me that she keeps all of them in a book.  This means the world to me! 

Here is the sketch: 




I finally broke out my new Verve goodies I ordered right after the release!  I am in love with this floral set and matching dies!  These dies are very easy to use especially with the little clear positioning tool that's included.  And did I mention that they come in their own little pouch?  Julee has thought of everything!



Happy Mother's Day!  I may be back later in the day with another post and to update my supply list!

Happy Mother's Day to you, too! My MIL is visiting for 2 weeks to help w/ the boys so we're enjoying a day at home.

Love the neutral colors on your beautiful card! I like the trio of brads in the flower centers that you balanced on the banner as well - cool!

Goodness, how did I get so far behind on your posts? This is so beautiful! Love the flowers and the vine lots (although I have to admit that I am slightly surprised you like this die since it didn't cut each leaf, lol!) The gingham and kraft look fantastic with this too! You should enter this in CASual Fridays challenge too for the text!! So pretty!
