With Mother's Day being just around the corner, last night I finished writing and addressing my Mother's Day cards. 

I didn't post this card yet and since I mailed this morning, I thought I'd better post it before I forget.

I was planning on selling the stamp set that I used on my card, but after seeing some really pretty cards in the Splitcoast gallery using this single flower image (from this set), I've decided to keep it.  Don't you hate when you do that....sell a set and then wish you had kept it?  I try to avoid that problem!

My background is embossed using my Cuttlebug and D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.  On my Certainly Celery layer I've added a bit of paper piercing along both sides.  And my main flower image was just stamped, colored using my SU Markers, and then I added a bit of dazzling diamonds glitter.

I'm so glad you stopped by and I'd love to have you become a follower.  I update almost daily using mostly SU images and I'm having a great time sharing my work with everyone!

This is really a pretty and sweet card for Mother's day :) I know exactly what you mean about wanting to sell or give it away, then wanting to keep it again! Always have that dilemma! ;)

Oh this set is definitely a keeper. Beautiful card. The cb folder you used with it is so classic and works so well with the striped paper.
