Mother's Day Card

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day Card I made for my MIL (it says," A mother cradles her children for a time and loves them endlessly" for the top sentiment...aweeee makes me tear up. ) The sentiments and center graphic were from Graphics 45 "A Time to Flourish".   I fussy cut them out and put them on vellum that I colored the edges with that my son's girlfriend gave me for Christmas.  The green paper Jillibean Soup and  was from Lisa Mensing  @ the Crafting Cave (THANKS). the purple contrast was K&Co "The Best of Susan Winget". I used spellbinders to cut out the center and taped the graphic behind.  The ribbon was Offrey, and the brad was from Recollections.
