Mother's Day Cards

Here are the cards I made for my two wonderful mothers. I used a card from Prairie Paper & Ink as a sketch and went from there (she makes truly beautiful cards so check her out). The images were free images I got off the web from clip art services (unfortunately it was some time ago so I don't remember the specific site). I have blurred out the insides as they are personal messages.  All the coloring was done using my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

This is the card I made for my mother - so it has the girl giving flowers.

This is the card made for my husband's mother - so it has the boy.

I have submitted these cards to:
Oozak Earthtones Challenge
Craft-Dee Bowz Handmade Bow Challenge
Make My Monday Green and Yellow Challenge
365 Cards Back to Nature Challenge
