What Would You Do?



I had a chance to see an old co-worker.  She handed me a sprig of silk flowers and asked if I would make a Mother's Day card for her.  What an honor to be asked to create a little something for her.  So here it is a week later and I wasn't quite sure what to make of my sprig.  I could pluck the flowers off and use them as an embellishment.  Instead I decided to use it as the center piece and I also decided not to go to crazy with the design.  I found the perfect papers in my huge collection of scraps.  Spruced them up with the embossing folder and die cut shapes.  Unfortunately, I wasn't sure how I was going to get the sentiment on without it looking out of place.  Thankfully I was able to stamp it in with black ink without it looking too bad.  Here's the final design and I hope she will send it to her Mother.  I must say that I really like it.  It kinda looks like I altered the sprig of silk flowers instead of making a card.  I love it!
