Happy Mom's Day!

I got Mother's Day cards done early this year thanks in part to inspiration from a new challenge blog over at Mountain Plains Crafters!  Check out their blog for great inspiration!  They are 3 ladies I've been following on Friends With Flair for some time and they are branching out to start their own crafty blog. 
Here is the inspiration photo I used to make my card.  Isn't it pretty!?!

I knew I wanted to watercolor and used this flower bouquet as a jumping off point. I used a flower stamp from Unity's Strength & Dignity KOTM and the sentiment is a Unity Itty Bitty.  I love pink, orange and yellow color combos and used some green and teal in the background.  Of course my cards usually have a mind of their own and so some dark blue got dabbled in as well.  :)
Here is my card, done in time to mail out to my mom!
I hope all you moms out there have a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!  I wish I could spend mine with my mom but I will instead be loving on my little ones hopefully with a mimosa in hand and feet up (I can dream can't I?)!
