Accessories: Square lattice texture Folder, 5 petal flower, boho blossoms,1inch circle,curly label punch,white gel pen,butterfly eyelet(retired SU!)

Mothers Day! It is definetly a party for me.  This year I celebrate my mom,whom I am very proud of!  She has been taking care of her children for 45 years!  This year the Lord told her it was time to take care of herself for a change!!!  She was diagnosed with breast cancer the end of last summer and has been phenomenal in her own care. She has done MAJOR lifestyle changes and has been as tough as a coconut=))).  She is truly an inspiration.

So, I guess I can tell you a little bit about this card(inspired by my mom) then;\ . The base is barely banana layered with a sq lattice textured close to cocoa CS.  A layer of pink then white with sage shadow palm fronds stamped on the white. I punched a piece of pink DSP with the biggest flower from boho punch and layered it on a 5petal flower punched with taken with teal and centered with an eyelet.  I stamped the smallest island flower twice on banana CS and cut out.  The coconuts are my favorite part! I punched out 2 1in circles out of the cocoa textured paper.  I then punched each with the edge of the curly label punch(1 inside and opposite) so it would seem as they were cracked in half(and could be put back together!). I used my white gel pen to highlight the inside.
Hope you Enjoy!  And more importantly to all moms out there- Have a beautiful and blessed MOTHER'S DAY!
Until Next Thought~Kris
