Happy Mother's Day

Twenty Mother's Day cards ~ all from the same sketch ~ for the babies at the NICU I work at to give their Moms this Sunday.  It is a simpler version of this card, since I made them assembly fashion.  I used five color schemes, two different flower stamps and sentiment stamps, and five impression plates so that no two are exactly alike.  I am also entering them into three Mother's Day challenges at Card Crafter's Circle and The Paper Players and Ribbon Carousel.

Challenge #21 - Mum's the Word!
