In honor of Mother's Love and Friendship!
My mother passed away several years ago. She loved flowers of all kinds, especially lavendar!
This card was created using several older Cricut Cartridges and one new Cartridge!
The card base is cut using the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge "Art Philosphy".
The girl and wheelbarrow are from Cricut Cartridge "A Child's Life".
The background was created using fence and mountains from
Cricut Cartridge "Paper Doll Dress Up"
The forest cut is from Cricut Cartridge "Plantin School Book".
Chalk ink is used over the surface of the card is help create sky, mountains, and grass.
Stems from extra cuts of the flowers from the card base cut from "Art Philosopy" are colored with a Copic Marker.
I opened the card and glued a narrow strip of white paper across where the leaves are located.
Then glued the stems on the front where the strip is located.
Here is the fun part!
I took one of the complete flower images, layered 2 more of the flower (only) images using foam tape, and added beaded flower embellishments that I had in my stash!
Then glued the whole flower on the green stem. All of this added dimension to the card.
I tore a piece of green paper and glued at the base of the flowers to show grass.
The little girl is cut from white Walmart "Colorbok" Textured paper.
I used lavendar ink to add interest. The flowers in the wheelbarrow are cut from a lavendar image of the girl/wheelbarrow. I cut out the flower section and glued it to a green piece of cardstock.
"Single Flower Sentiment" is by Stampabilities
The mountains and forest are edged with 'White Cloud' chalk ink. The fence is edged with brown chalk ink and then green grass/flowers are drawn on with Sharpie Markers.
The sentiment is from a computer font.
Inside view of card. This is on the top portion of the card. The green strip covers the opening where the flowers are located.

...I could walk forever in my garden!
Have a blessed Mother's Day!
