A Blue Card in so many ways

A blue card in more ways than one I made this card and couldn't decide which stamp to use on it, in the end I decided that it was such a pretty card that the Happy Mothers Day stamp  from Occasional Greetings matched perfectly with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder.

Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings
Ink: Tempting Turquoise Reinker, Pacific Point
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White
Textured Impressions Embossing Folder: Elegant Bouquet
Punches: Scallop Circle & Boho Blossoms
Other: Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Brayer,
Paper piercer, Stampin Sponge, Glue Stick

Now you may be asking why is it a blue card in so many ways, well  #1 My Mum isn't with us anymore,
#2 its not Mothers Day, #3 The stamped image is smudged as it got a couple of drops of rain on it  (or maybe a couple of tears) but I am sure my mum would love it anyway. When we first lost my Mum to Cancer 41/2 years ago just before Mothers day my eldest daughter naturally went and bought her a Mothers day card as she always had (they were very close) then suddenly realised what she had done, but she still took it up to mum's garden at the cemetery and after 4 1/2 years she still takes her a card or flowers for any special occasion.
So even though its not Mothers Day lets all remember our Mum's.

Gorgeous card Sally. My Mum too passed away just before Mothers Day (8 years next year) and I just had a little cry reading your entry. Thanks for sharing not only your card but a little bit of you too.
