Perennial Mother's Day Cards

These are a few samples of some Mother's Day cards I worked up for troops overseas to send home. This particular group lifts up from the bottom. I tried to add a bit of variation by using different colors for the flowers and ribbon, tying ribbon in a couple different ways (some have colored strips of cardstock and brads instead of ribbon), and using different flourishes, such as curliques and butterflies. While most are for "Mom," I also made a bunch that could be sent home to "Grandma."

Stamps: Butterfly (Live Your Dreams--Stampin Up!); Flowers (Perennial Friendship--Stampin' Up!); Greetings (Mother's Day Sayings--Darcie's); Corner Flourishes (Fancy Flexible Phrases)
Paper: White (Xerox Cardstock)
Ink: Basic Black, Pink Passion, Perfect Plum, More Mustard (SU)
Accessories: Markers (Le Plume), Grosgrain ribbon (Joann's and Wal-mart)

These are very very pretty! I'm definately going home to try to make something similar. Thanks for the ideas! Although I don't have any flower stamps so I'll just draw them freehand. Yikes! :)
