A Too Kind Mother's Day Card

I just realized something.  I don't make many landscape cards.  Most of mine are portrait orientated.  What's up with that?  And why did it take me so long to realize that?  I think sometimes we get into a routine with our card making and we tend to keep things the same orientation.  It's not intentional, it's just the way we are wired!!!  We tend to think that cards open like a book and that is how we most often make them!  Well, today I stepped out of my usual routine and I made a landscape card!!!

I found this card on the net.  It was made by Jill Franchette at Jill's Ink.  I thought it was such a pleasing card to the eye, and it just happened to be a landscape layout!!!  I did change the wording.  I think hers used one of the words images from that same set.  I used the "Happy Mother's Day" from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  

The flowers are from the "Too Kind" set.  And the colors used here are the soon to be retiring Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding.  I have liked working with those colors.  They are very spring like and created such a happy feeling.  I hope the next new in colors will have that same effect.  I just can't imagine any new colors.  Haven't we seen them all now?  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
