A Mother's Blessing

I very rarely make a card with a neutral/white backgroud, but have been wanting to find a simple design that I could do just that. While looking at Mother's Day cards at Hallmark the other day, I found a card with a simple bouquet of flowers on it. I immediately thought of my CTMH stamp set "Friendship Blessings." I put together this little card, using Tulip, Crystal Blue, Honey and Chocolate inks. I stitched the stems with some green embroidary floss.
Tip of the Day: Need inspiration? Visit your local card store to get ideas for card layouts, colors ect. All of my best work are copies of another card....just with my own take on them.

I plan to mass produce this Blessings card to send out to all the MOPS moms in my discussion group (about 15) for Mother's Day and am glad to only use a few products to make such a lovely card.
