Happy Mother's Day!

I made a card like this in blue a while ago, and liked it so much I made several Mother's Day cards in different colors. I sent them off to OWH well in advance of the Mother's day deadline, so hopefully there are some Mom's out there today enjoying these cards.  I used a chicken wire stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, and the floral image is from SU! called Fabulous Flowers (r). First up is my favorite color combination - purple & green.
I took a black Copic marker and added some black dots to the ribbon to pull this one all together.

And last but not least - orange.
Happy Mother's Day everyone.........I hope all you moms out there enjoy a very special day!

Wow, there are some lucky moms out there that will receive these beautiful cards. I really have to get that stamp. Enjoy your day, Carol. A special Happy Mother's Day wish to you from me.

These are so pretty Carol! I would have never thought to use the chicken wire as the background! Love all the different colors.
Hope you have a great Mother's Day

Beautiful, Carol! I hope you're having a wonderful Mother's Day. I'm not getting to be with my boys today so I'm having a pity party. LOL
Thought I would make a card and came over to check out yours where you colored on vellum. Now, I'm off to try that.

I'm sure there are plenty of Moms just delighted with your cards today. How special is that!
