Challenge # 114 - Mom

Since Mother's Day - in North America is this coming Sunday we thought we'd help you get your Mother's Day cards done a little bit in advance. 
Now, of course, this doesn't have to be a card - it can be anything that makes you think of Mom.

Here is what our design team came up with...

First off we have Jenn Zeeb..  I love how the black makes everything just pop!  I'm sure the Mom that receives this card will absolutely love it!

Georgia Ehrman used this adorable image from Stamp and Create.  I love that little bit of lace!

Crystal Dennett's card is so sweet!  What mother doesn't love a bouquet of flowers?  I love the rose dp.

Last, but certainly not least we have Jacqui McNeil - how adorable is this!  I absolutely love the layers!
