I created this Happy Mother's greeting card on a white card stock with a rough sketch of the visualised handmade card in my mind. But once I sat down at my craft table to work on it, it begins to take a different direction after I laid down the first stamped image and die cuts. Then as I began to play with the watercolor, the color kind of change too and in the end, this is what I got.
Well, though this Happy Mothers Day greeting card isn't what I visualised it to be and the paper is a bit buckled and wrinkled, I'm sure mom will still be happy to receive this handmade card.
Mother's Love Quotes
Richer Than Gold
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be --
I had a mother who read to me.
~ Strickland Gillilan
