Magnolias for Mom

Hi Everyone! 

Just a quick post this evening, to share another card I made to encourage my mom, who finally came home from the hospital this week. 

I have had this Flourishes stamp set for at least two years, and for those of you entrenched in this stampy world, you know they have been out of business for nearly a year.  This is the first time I inked up this gorgeous image.  I think it intimidated me in the past, but I finally decided now was as good a time as any!  It was the perfect image for my mom as she definitely likes more traditional images. 
I used the a sketch at Deconstructed Sketch; congrats to Jen on her 200th sketch challenge!  I chose this sketch to use this week~

I am also playing along in Power Poppy's challenge this month, 'Cut it Out'; in other words, fussy cut that main image!  I just ordered my first Power Poppy stamp, but as luck would have it, it is very detailed and not meant for fussy cutting- even for this girl who loves to fussy cut! 
I am also entering this into Stamplorations' May Challenge, 'Stamps and Leaves'.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a blessed weekend!

Lee Ann  :)
