May Flowers for Mom

Today I made another card for one of the mothers on my list for Mothers' Day. I used a Squigglefly new May Release called "Spring Heart" from artist Niina Niskanen.
The challenge this week is to "Add something to the border of your card, be it a punch, a piece of ribbon, some lace, decorative paper strips, etc."
I printed Niina's image twice, fussy-cut it and framed it with CTMH patterned paper. I love how the flowers form a freestyle heart. I decided to go to my go-to card design, an easel card. I adhered my two framed hearts to the bottom half of my card face and added a few silver leaf charms and a sentiment.
When standing open, my Mother's Day greeting decorates the inside, along with my punched border and a few jewels. I used my Martha Stewart clearance rack punch for my card.
Go check out the new challenge at Squigglefly Challenge Blog (don't forget to print out a Squigglefly image and pull out your border punches!)
