First Mother's Day card

I usually sell some Mother's Day cards at work so here is my first one. Keeping up my resolution to stay ahead this year. The layout was a happy accident. One of the things I love about cardmaking is that it isn't an exact science and sometimes wen you do something wrong it works out well. I punched the edges of the strip with my new MSBP and carefully stuck the ribbon so it wrapped around the edges. I hat just fixing the ribbon edge to edge as it may fray. That's when I discovered my error. I had forgotten to measure the strip and it was too wide to put across the card. I was going to put the image at an angle so I placed the border at an angle instead. I really like the lo this way. I added some punched and Prima flowers.
