Mother's Day Card

I'm so very pleased that this idea turned out the way it did.  It took a bit of guesswork and measuring but turned out just sensational.

This is my first time using the Strength and Hope set, it's fabulous and what is even better is that Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from the sale of each and every set to Breast Cancer research, so what better set to use for a Mother's Day card than this.  The words in the background also aptly describe Mother's.

Here is the card closed, I used a narrow vanilla ribbon for that.  The colours are Rose Red, Perfect Plum and Very Vanilla, a combo I came up with a week or so ago and I've been waiting for the right card to come along to use them.

And whent he card is open there is room for your message on the under side of the scalloped circle front.
