Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, 
but their hearts forever. ~Author Unknown

Mother's day is right around the corner.....
I already have my gift for my mom....
I was just missing one thing....
a CARD to go with her gift!

Here is the card I created for her!
And can I say.....EASY PEASY too boot!!

I began with a piece of Canvas Corp ~ E Flute ~Kraft 
for my card base. I distressed the edges using a Distrezz it All,
then added a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Baseboard ~ Red Rocks
for color.

I cut a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Black on Ivory Toile, 
leaving some of the card base showing.
I also distressed the edges of the paper,
coloring with both 
Tattered Angels ~ Baseboard ~ Red Rocks and Grass.

I diecut Leafy Flowers from a piece of 
Tattered Angels ~ Pure Mistable Papers ~ Boulce ~ Cream
and spritzed the diecut image with
Tattered Angels ~ Baseboard ~ Grass.

I altered a Burlap Ivory Flower
with a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Baseboard ~ Red Rocks!
...added bit of Canvas Corp ~ Burlap Fringe
and a Silk loopy bow to finish off the card!
....and there you have it....
a BEAUTIFUL Mother's Day card
for a WONDERFUL woman!!
