Polka Dots & Stripes with Flower - AHSC Winner Top 3

Using the Sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #106 and using the Colors from Color My Heart Color Dare #141, I made this card.  I didn't put a sentiment intentionally but it is intended for a Mother's Day Card; however, with no sentiment it can be used for any future occasion card. The flower and stem on the card were from CTMH Stamp Set D1247 "From Me to You"

My mom passed away several years ago; but this would have been her Mother's Day Card...she loved her flowers.  Her yard was a Botantical Garden of an assortment of very colorful flowers.  She would pick fresh flowers almost daily and would display them in a vase either in the living room or dining room tables.  This card is for you Mom.

What a pretty card. My mom passed away in October 2012 and Mother's Day seems to be the hardest holiday for me. Even though I'm a mom it seems like all the balloons, flowers and cards that are on display smack me straight in the face with the reminder that I don't have a mom anymore. Your card is beautiful and maybe I will try making my mom a card next year to take away the pain.
