Mother's Day

I don't have a mom or grandma, but my sister does infant foster care & has for many years--truly a "baby person"!  She loves to get cards from me so I'll send this to her.  I'm brain dead from trying to learn a new job, but decided to see if the other side of my brain could come up with something so I didn't miss ODBD Shining The Light Challenge HERE.  This week's theme is new life & that can be represented by flowers.  I finally made a card with the flower image from Don't Worry.  It's colored with Distress Ink milled lavender & some green & brown markers.  The Fancy Labels image is stamped with VersaMagic Ocean Depth & cut out with the compatible Spellbinders Label 17 die.  The pp is Chatterbox I've had for a long time. Pearls, gems, lace & ribbon are added for this feminine card.  The greeting is a new DeNami cling stamp that I masked so I could stamp each word separately.  I appreciate your stopping by & I'll catch up on visiting all of you this weekend.
