A Few Mother's Day Cards

A Quote for Today:

It's not the mistakes you make, but how you react to those mistakes that makes all the difference. Julie Wainwright

It's about time I finished these Mother's Day Cards!...

It's about time I completed these cards for Mother's Day. My sister Bethann, inspired me with this post to return to these large silk flowers for Mother's Day this year. (Thanks Bethann!)
I'm going to do one supply list at the end. The last card is not 100% completed because it is not going out for Mother's Day, I just wanted to see how that color would look. I could even use it for a birthday card.

Supplies: Cardstock: The paper Company; Patterned Paper: Making Memories (diamond and striped bolds), Black and White Oriental Trading; Specialty Paper: LaCreme Stack by DCWV; Colored vellum
Sentiments: Computer generated; Accents: Rhinestones/ Oriental Trading; Silk Flowers/ Garden Ridge in Virginia, Large heart and Flower Brads/ unknown ; Ribbon/Fiber: Black & white/ JoAnn's ; Ink/Chalk: Rubber Stampede/black; Tools: flower punch by Stampin Up; Templates: cuttlebug/various
