For Mom


I have to tell ya...I LOVE how this card turned out.....
I also LOVE these dies...
I could sit and make dozens of these tiny gorgeous little flowers...
in every color....in fact, I think I will!!!
I used 4 different Cheery Lynn flower dies.....
Cuties 1~2~3 and the minature rose die.....
I also made my own inked seam binding in the lovely teal blue using some Tattered Angels
spray mist.....
it's a bit hard to see, but I made a "doily pocket"
for the flowers.....
This card is for my Mom for her 85th birthday on May 6th...
I know she is going to love it.....
I am entering this in the flower challenge at Joans Gardens
and also in the for Mom challenge at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog....
and in The Shabby Tea Room "April Showers"
and all these dies were and can be purchased from Joans Gardens if interested!!
