Mothers Day Card

Hi Everyone!! I have another card for you today. I made this card for my Mother for Mothers Day and I think it came out pretty well. The paper and cardstock are from DCWV and I used my Cricut Expression and the Walk In My Garden cartridge to cut the flower pot and the bleeding hearts flowers. I wanted a softer look for the hearts themselves so I cut them in the pink cardstock instead of  red, which is their natural color... I I used a scallopped circle .cut file for Design Studio using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge from Okieladybug's blog here and adjusted the size to my needs. I used Stardust Stickles on the pink hearts and the pink part of the scallopped circles. The sentiment is from Studio G and the only thing I am not really happy with. The sentiment itself is ok, but I really need to expand my collection of ink colors and buy more sentiments for more occasions. I glued the part of the stem in the pot down and then pop dotted everything else for some dimension. The bow was from my stash. Hope you like it!
