All Dressed Up

It is an absolutely gorgeous day here on the Treasure Coast of Florida. I hope you're enjoying some beautiful weather in your corner of the world too.

I had to make sure my mom had received this card before I could show it and then I forgot about it. This is the card I made for Mother's Day for both of our moms. I saw a similar card in a SU Portfolio long before Mother's Day and knew that was what I was going to do. Many thanks to my dh for his help with making the pattern. I was feeling really bad on the day I made the cards and even a simple pattern like this seemed overwhelming to me to make. Mark came to my rescue! The only stamping on the card is the little corsage on the lapel and the sentiment inside the card. Now that I look at this picture I wish that I had thought to ink the edges of the cardstock, especially on the lapels. Hindsight is always 20/20. : )
