Mother's Day Card for OWH

Hello Friends,

Today I would like to share with you a card I made for Operation Write Home, they are requesting Mother's Day Cards until the end of this month so that they can get them to our Heroes so they can get them mailed home in time!!  Here is my card:

 
For this A2 card I started with white cardstock for the base of the card.  Next I took my Die-Versions Whispers Heart Flower Frame die and cut it out in several different papers to get the look that I wanted.  I cut it out in white so I could stamp the center of the card with Happy Mother's Day.  Next I cut it out in the darker green paper for the heart and the leaves and then I cut out two different shades of peach paper for the flower and I pieced it all together and attached that to the 4 inch by 5 1/4 inch light green paper that I attached to the base of the card.  Then I inked the edges with some green ink.  Now it is already for one of our Heroes to write out and send home for Mother's Day!!
 
I hope I have inspired you to create something today and I would love to read what you think of this card!!
 
Thanks for stopping by!!
Lori
