Sweet Sunday Flowers For Mom



I just loved Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch this week.  Nice and simple with lots of options to "dress it up" as much or as little as you want to.  My kind of sketch :)  I opted to keep it rather simple and love the clean feel to this card.

I pulled out the fabulous flower image in Close As A Memory from Stampin' Up.  Just love this flower spray and it is great for Mother's Day cards.  I paired it with this delightful pink and white polka dotted DP which I bought up when it was on clearance at Michael's a year or so ago.  A lacy nestie framed the flowers fabulously and some ribbon and a butterfly with bling finished things off.    I love the fresh feel of this card and hope you do too :)

We have another sunny day today and it feeeeeeels good...nanananana, just like it should.....nananana, sorry, couldn't resist LOL!   Sunshine is making me giddy :)   Have a good one!

Stamps: (Stampin' Up) Thoughts and Prayers and Fancy Flexible Phrases 
Paper:  Making Memories DP, Lavender Lace, So Saffron

I'm still loving that yellow you've used. Just a beautiful Mother's Day creation. Nananana to you...oh, we are sooooooo cloudy and rainy, but with a promise of prettier weather in a day or so. We are off to Georgia on Friday to visit our son....have a wonderful Easter.
