Custom: Like a Sister Mothers Day Card

I own an upscale pet salon in the Denver area and have designated an area in my retail area for my cards. I had a lady the other day who wanted something specific for a woman who is like a sister to her for Mothers Day.... not a super feminine lady, no pinks please, more subdued... so heres what I came up with (crossing fingers).................
This is the topper and I popped in a photo
of my daughter and her friend to show
how it will look with a photo

The butterfly is a clip (recycled from an old card),
so if its to much for her
she can remove it

I LOVE this ribbon and bought it in 3 colors
so I picked the brown for this card

I really love dimentional cards!

There is an array of Prima roses and flowers

I love the title she asked me to put on this card

A place for her personal message to the recipiant

I will be entering the following challenges! Digital Elemet Distressed Tuesday Green and Gorgeous Wednesday Recycle Reuse Renew Wednesday Mothers Day and Flowers Thursday

  3. I love pink but I also love to see other not so feminine colours used to create a soft and feminine card or project. Sometimes the eye just needs a little break from all the sweetness. I really like the lovely garland of flowers and leaves and the pretty bow. I am sure they will both love it! :)
