Vintage Easel Card for Mother's Day

Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all who celebrate being a mom!  I made this vintage style easel card for my mother-in-love for Mother's day.  She's the only parent we have left between my hubby and I.  I miss my own mom so much, especially on Mother's Day and her birthday, and Christmas, and Easter, and flag day and National Whoopie Pie Day......  I miss her every day, so I'm very thankful to have this dear, sweet woman in our lives to celebrate.
I used beautiful papers by Mintay called 7th Heaven.  ~Swoon~   

 The clock face is from Marianne Designs, I cut it from gold foil cardstock. 
 I added some leafy greens and baby's breath both from Taylored Expressions.  The flowers are from Prima and the bird is from Tim Holtz botanical ephemera.

I love how this card came out and hope that she'll love it too.

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Use a Die Cut or a Punch
Inspired By ~ Flower Me With Color
Crafter's Castle: May Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations: May ~ Say It With Flowers

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Birgit all our parents have passed, I miss my parents so much also, we use to talk at the least once a week, even though I lived in another state to always know they were a call away meant so much.

Happy Mother's day to you!
