Today is Card Creating Tuesday and today I am posting the Mother's Day card I made for my mom.  I love how it turned out!! 

First I cut the base at 5.5 inches using the card function key on Art Philosophy.  The image is on page 51 in the handbook.  I also cut the printed yellow background using the regular key and it was cut at 5 inches. 

The two sunflowers were made using Walk In My Garden and I also used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The flowers were cut at 4 and 4.50 inches.  The flowers were also popped up from the card using foam squares.  The banner was stamped using a Peach Keen stamp and then I folded it and also added a foam square to make it stand out from the card.
