What mum wouldn't love to receive this lovely little bunch of flowers?

When my kids were little they used to raid my garden to find flowers to make into a bunch to give me.  Yes, some of them were bruised and broken.  Yes, sometimes they were weeds. Yes, the colour combos were often quite weird, but oh how I loved that they wanted to give me them.  Sometimes they would have bits of foil wrap or they would be tied up with bits of wool. 

I like the freshness of the blue and white with the touch of greeness.  I distressed the edges of all the card and papers to go with the rustic image.  Dots of GA in the centre of the flowers.

Beautiful card Carol and the memory it brings is even better. I think most mums would say the same thing, nothing beats a little fist full of weeds picked especially for mummy.xx

Oh yes, I had a vase on the window ledge above the sink for such offerings :)
That script folder was one of my first ef's. A gorgeous card, and I love the detailing of the distressed edges on the embossed papers
Stay safe
