I have the best mother in the world!

My mother is an amazing person, so patient, so caring, so loving, so mothering, so everything wonderful...she's done a lot for me lately (well my entire life) but I really felt the need to make a card for her not for mother's day or her b-day, just because...

I used Kazan's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You, here is her sketch:

I've been in the vintage mood lately and here is my take on Kazan's sketch:

The swirly image behind the Thank You stamp is a stamp from Stampin' Up! which I keep forgetting that I have that I love! It's SO SWIRLY!

Decided to dress up the back of the card as well:

A Mother's Love:
-CS: Bazzill "Med Pink", Bazzill Basics "Safari"
-DPs: Anna Griffin series and DCWV "Olive Script"
-Stamps: Hero Arts "Collage Thank You", Stampin' Up! "So Swirly" Jumbo Wheel and Inkadinkado "Handmade Flower Mug"
-Inks: Versafine "Vintage Sepia", Jim Holtz Distress Ink "Fired Brick" and Colorbox "Dark Moss"
-Dew Drops: Robin's Nest "DD Hyacynth"
-Computer fonts: scrapNfonts CK Elegant at 24 pts, CK Bella at 24 pts and LD Dirty Drusillus at 24 pts
