Mother's Day Gift





I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day!  This was a little gift I threw together at the last minute for my mom.  It took me about an hour to get it done.  Amazing what you can do when you are in a hurry huh?

All files were purchased from the Silhouette store.

The white flower is a new file and I am loving it.  It was easy to put together.  Next time I will dry emboss it.  I decided to cut the bottom layer a different color and to offset it instead of lining the petals up with the 3D petals.  To make the petals even more 3D, I put a piece of foam underneath each petal.

The playing cards shown in picture 2 were purchased from Sams online.  My mom wanted a set and sis said she needed 2.  The picture was taken shortly after my parents had gotten married (over 55 years ago).  Mom was so excited about the cards and had forgotten she asked for them...:-)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
