A Mother's Day Flower

I made this card for my Mom for Mother's Day, 
and luckily it fits for two current challenges ~ at
CASology and Less is More.  The challenge at 
CASology is "flower" and at Less is More the 
challenge is "die cuts."  The leaves are die cut.

I have not had any time to post lately, even though 
I have been making cards.  My life has been turned 
upside down in the past few weeks.  My son needed a 
rather intensive workup following a routine physical; 
I have been taking a class on advanced energy healing;
and we had to say "Good Bye" to a beloved kitty. 
Despite all of this craziness, there is so much to be 
grateful for.  The best of it is that my son has received
 a clean bill of health.  Our kitty is no longer suffering
and is in kitty heaven now.
