Mother's Day

My husband had to go into the hospital last night
for a sleep study, and I was home all by myself.
I crafted for hours and here is what I created.

The stamps and dies I used are all from Betsy Veldman's new company,
Betsy always comes up with something new and exciting.
I am thrilled with everything I bought from her first release.
I used the Large Terrarium die and the gorgeous flowers
After I finished the terrarium and flowers, 
I felt like I needed some texture in the background.
I used a Cuttlebug EF called Circular Grid.
The card stock is a neutral because I didn't want 
the background to compete with the flower colors.
The ink colors are all Gina K. Designs.

I am in love with this tree.  
The stamp set is called Fir and Foliage No. 1.
The large tree is a four step process and
 the small tree is a three step process.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Your kind comments are always appreciated.
