Mother's Day Gingham Floral Card

Well, I thought I was done with Mother's Day cards until my husband requested I make another.  Today I read about the Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge and I decided to incorporate gingham into my husband's Mother's Day card request so I could participate.  When I started looking through my paper stash I didn't have a lot of gingham to choose from.  Given what I had to work with I'm really happy with the way this card turned out.  If you want to check out other cards entered in the Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge just click on the link.  Who knows maybe you will decide to enter the challenge.  Have a creative day!
