For the Love of Flowers!

Hello, Today I would love to share with you a card that I've created for my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day. She's not into anything to fancy so I tried to keep this fairly simple.  She does love flowers, especially wildflowers.  So for this card I've used an image from the Paper Garden.  Coloured with my markers and cut out with my Creative memories circle makers.  The paper was from my stash and the ribbon is from multicraft imports and So Facile.  The charm is from a friend and the flourish is also from Recollections given to me by another sweet friend!
I pray that she enjoys the card and it encourages her to get out and play in her flowerbed! (she has an amazing one in her yard)
I'm going to be sharing his over at Just keep on Creating - anything goes/travel stories
For the travel stories, I just want to say that wherever I go, one of the things that I always remember are the flowers.  Don't ask me about buildings (unless they're old farmhouses) , because I remember where I go by the flowers I saw there! This spring, my boys and I went on a walk while my children were in an art class with the homeschoolers.  We found some incredible wild crocus blooming in the woods! Incredible!
I pray you have a wonderful day and perhaps you'll notice some beautiful flowers as you go about your day!

What a pretty card you've created for your Mother-In-Law! I love the image of the flowers in the bottle! The colours you've used are so pretty! It's so nice that you've used the gifts from your friends...that always makes it even more special, doesn't it? Our prairies will be full of wild crocuses soon! They're always very beautiful!...Nancy :o)

Hi Jen! This is very pretty. You always have a trick up your sleeve to share with us, and this one is great! I hope you will consider linking up at Word Art Wednesday this week. We don't have much participation this week for some reason. Hope you're having a great week, and hope to see you soon. Thanks for sharing this very pretty card!
