This is my card.....I am used to fairly traditional floral cards for Mother's Day which as you see is the style I made here.  The image is actually a freebie decoupage from a magazine, and I teamed it with a couple of feminine floral papers, a bit of lace and pink ribbon. A simple computer-generated sentiment finishes it off.
