Mom - AHSC #96

Hello, Happy Tuesday to you! 

Today I bring you a Mother's day card and this is significant in that I have not made a Mother's Day card in years. My mother passed away over 20 years ago and since then I have just had a mental block on Mother's day even though I have the most amazing and wonderful Mother in law who is more like my own mother than my mother in law. I think it is just from not doing anything for Mother's Day in so long I forget and then suddenly it is here and to late for me to do anything about and off I go to buy one. Not this year, I am so ahead of the game that her card is already made, now lets hope I do not loose it!

For this card, I used Sketch 96 from AHSC and I broke into my Blushed supply which is diminishing and used this soft, pretty, and sweet Canary based floral side of the B&T paper. I love everything about Blushed, everything but this paper I have been having a really hard time cutting into as I find it so pretty. I was able to do it because I know I am going to order another pack of this paper, it is just so versatile and I love it!

As you can see, I flipped my card on the side just to mix things up a bit, there was no real need to, I just did. That is the great thing about sketches, they are road maps and not the rule.
