Family Blessing Rose Card

This is a family card with a bold sentiment and pretty pink roses.


Sentiment:  Family is life's greatest blessing.



This one started with just the flowers and then I expanded the coloring to the sentiment and heart in ombre.  I made this with my Mom in mind.  It could be for any family member's celebration like birthday, Mother's Day, sister, etc.

You are Strong Inspirational Mixed Media Card

I know of two very special people who need these words right now.
