Mother's Day Card for MIL

Mother's Day is on Sunday, so I created a card for my mother-in-law, because I know my husband hasn't even given it any thought. : )

I used a sketch from Cricut Fanatics for the layout. The flower was cut from Formal Occasion.

I love the colors on the Citrus paper. I just bought it yesterday during my lunch break, and I had to use it right away. I used glitter glue all over the rose and added a little ribbon bow. I've had that ribbon for almost five years (crazy!) and I have just a bit of it left. Then I added a few gems inside and out. The sentiment inside is from Simply Charmed.
