Mother’s Day – Thankful Life

It’s all about the layers! Lots of paper layers and a three step stating technique for the flowers make this card look very intricate, but it’s actually a simple card to make. I also love the stitched framlits. It’s an easy way to give the card more details. I used this as a Mother’s Day card, but could also be a thank you or birthday card.
