Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and are able to enjoy it the way you want to.  My mother moved to Arizona about 15 months ago, so we're not able to spend the day together.  I miss her a lot, but she's coming to visit in a few weeks and I'm really looking forward to that!!

The card I have to share today is the card I sent to my mother for Mother's Day.  I recently got the Flower Shoppe cartridge (as you can probably tell from some of my recent posts!!).  I wanted to use one of the flowers from that cartridge, and I also wanted to do something a little different than a standard A2 card.  I still kept it the A2 size, but instead used the gate fold.  I also used the same patterned paper on the inside of my card for a little something extra.

I'm going to enter this card into the challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion.  The challenge this week is Mother's Day.  Thanks for coming by!!
