Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Everyone!
      I am a little late with this post.  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day with your families!
     This is the card that I made my mother for Mother's day.  I am really happy with the way it turned out.  My mother loves flowers and gardening so I really wanted to make something that reflected her personality.
      This is my first attempt at making paper flowers.  I've put off making them for so long because I thought that it would be difficult.  It could not have been easier.  The trick is winding the paper strips around something tightly (I used my craft tweezers) and then using strong glue to keep them from unraveling (glossy accents).  I glued them all together and let them dry overnight before I assembled the card.   One fell on the ground and my dog tried to eat it!  It was so funny - thankfully the flower was unharmed and found its way onto the card.  This was so much fun, I see many more flower projects in the future!
      It's been a little while since I posted.  I have some new projects to post soon.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
