The depth of your love...

Happy Mother's Day! I'm having a windy, COLD day unfortunately, but oh well, the sun is still shining.
Here's the 'Card' I made for my Mom. Hopefully she got it already, so I won't be spoiling the surprise.
I put card in quotes, because it's not really a card-card. The image I colored was waaaaay too pretty to crop, I had to use the whole thing, so it ended up being very LARGE with the sentiment, DP's, etc. I never mounted the entire thing to a card base at all, instead, I decorated the back, too, with a cream colored die cut so I could write a little message for her. I figured she could hang it on the wall, so I attached a bit of ribbon to the top as a hanger.
I've been after this Stampin Up set 'Riot of Petals' for a long, long time. It goes for ridiculously high price on Ebay, but I finally scored one for less money on the Splitcoast selling forum.

I stamped/embossed the image onto sturdy water color paper, then water colored the entire thing with Distress inks. I love the way this came out!
The sentiments are from Papertrey's Mother set.

Gotta run, we're off to NJ to visit my Mom! Enjoy your day Mothers!
