Thanks For Loving Me Flowers

I wanted to make a Spring card with soft details and with a love theme.  It was designed around the dainty dogwood flowers.  This one is going to be for my Mom.


Front Sentiment:  You have made a difference.


Inside Sentiment:  Thanks for loving me.

The flowers were heat embossed in white on white.  I watercolored with distress markers and paper pieced the petals onto the stems.  The wood grain and flower with stems were stamped in the background.  I added a little heart mailbox, crinkle ribbon, doily lace trim and turquoise garden papers.

Challenges:
Unity Stamp Company {be inspired} Sketch Challenge 12 Bunches of Love and FWF

Tools used include:

Hope you're staying warm. :)
