IC #81 Tenderness or Mother's Love

Good morning all you Maggie lovers! It's a gorgeous morning - sun shining brightly!
Today is our Inventory Reduction Challenge #81 - Be inspired by tenderness or mother's love.

I had to do a lot of "thinking through" my card for this one.  I wanted my card to be frilly and fancy and very feminine.

I used a Whiff of Joy image - Willow Holding Baby.  She is colored with Copics.
The card base is SU Very Vanilla.  The solid cardstock is Prism Iced Mint, Frosted Mint and Intense Mint.  Designer papers are Basic Grey Phoebe and Two Scoops and a DCWV stack.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.  Other embellishments are from Magnolia and my stash.

Here she is!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now scoot on over to my team mates' blogs and see their beautiful Mother's Day cards!
