Stippled Blossoms On All White

Today's card is a very special card to my Mom. It could be used as a Mother's Day card, a wedding card, a birthday card, or many other occasions, but I made this card as a "Thinking of You" card. My Mom loves roses, elegant laces, and she loves a lot of white or ivory.

I needed to make this card as much as for myself as for my Mom, and let her know how much I love her, and how much I believe she will be OK. On Sunday my Mom had a stroke which has her left side kind of useless right now. She can speak fairly well, but her mouth droops a bit on the left; her arm and leg, so far, will not obey her command. They have hope for her though, as they have seen the tiniest bit of improvement.

By the time you read this post I will have already given it to her. I'm pretty sure that she is going to love this card. The lace is a remnant from 20 years ago when I used to design and sew wedding gowns. I kept a few favorite laces...

 I'm showing it to you upside down here, just so that you can better see the layering.

Feminine cards can be so inspirational and fun to make. What inspiration do you have for your Mom on Mother's Day?

Happy stamping!
