Another Mother's Day card

Hi everyone!  Yes, I do exist -- I just haven't been posting since I have such a great team doing that for me.  You have to admit, they do some delectable work, don't they?

I was actually supposed to post something on Tuesday, but a visit to VA to see family precluded that.  Add that to the fact that I simply forgot to get it ready and well...!  So here's my contribution to our Mother's Day theme.

I know it comes as no surprise to you that I've used Graphic 45 papers again.  This is from their French Country selection.  This is a little twist on an easel card that I had seen and I added my own changes to it as you will see by the last two photos.  This card was simple as can be because all it took was fussy cutting some sunflowers and putting the different patterns together to make it more cohesive.  And, of course, I topped the whole thing off with a gorgeous satin ribbon, multiple loop bow created on the Craft-Dee BowZ.  Really, if you haven't availed yourself of this tool, NOW is the time to do it!



Here's a pic of the card open...



And here's a side view of how it sits...


I hope you enjoyed this simple-to-do card and feel free to leave comments.

Happy bow making!

Donna
