A Secret Garden Mother's Day Card

I think this may be the card I'm going to give to my mom. I like the cheery look of it and I like the Rose Red color.  

I used a little piece of decorative paper from the "Sunshine & Sprinkles" pack.  Another pack of paper I keep picking away at and there's still lots left.  I swear it multiplies when I'm not looking!!! LOL  Except for the sheets I REALLY like and have used up.  Ever notice that, there's usually one design in the pack that you just love and use it all up and then wish you had more?

The flower is from the "Secret Garden" set.  I just thought it would be pretty to make a single stem flower in a panel.  I like the simplicity of it.  The decorative paper gave the card the "fun" look and the flower gave it the simplicity look.  And of course the words say it all!  The words were done on the computer. I had printed out a full sheet of them and punch then out when I need them.  They fit with the 1/4" punch and they also fit in the oval, that is why I don't punch them out until I need them.  And I finished it off with the Rose Red scalloped circle behind the words.  

I think this one is a keeper!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love your cards. I often CASE you or you use your ideas as inspiration for card to do with my nursing home ladies. Your ideas are so clean and simple but yet so pretty. Thank you
