Pile It On - Mothers Day... but No Flowers!

With Mothers Day just around the corner over at Pile It Onthey thought they'd give you an easy challenge.....but then thought better of it! Ha! Yes they want to see your Mothers Day cards but have a little twist for you, NO FLOWERS! This means No Flowers in the image, on the paper, on the ribbon, as an embellishment, embossed, any flowers at all and it won't count! But we know how talented you are so that won't really be a problem will it?

I decided that Mothers Day cards don't have to super girlie, especially if they are coming from a son, and so went in that direction with my design and I really like how it turned out.
This little is so sweet with his Teddy Bear that I'm sure any Mommy would love to receive a card this like.
Now it's over to you!
