For my mom

Mother's Day is just around the corner.  This is the card I'll be giving my mom.  :)

I used one of the Elegant Trio stencils for the image.  Lavender Lace, Pale Plum and Apricot Appeal were sponged on the Whisper White card stock. I'm not a flower person so I just picked colors at random.  I absolutely love the result! The image panel is layered on a piece of Elegant Eggplant.  The sentiment from All Holidays is stamped right on top in Elegant Eggplant.  The card base is also Elegant Eggplant.  I used the new embossing folder, Square Lattice, on the Whisper White background piece.  I love, love, love this new folder.  I think it may be my favorite ever!  It completely changes the look of the paper.  I added a piece of 1/4" Elegant Eggplant grosgrain to finish the card.

I hope my mom likes it!
