Flower Pot Full of Sunflowers

This is a birthday card for my Mom. Love you Mom! Happy Happy Birthday! She is such a sweet, humble person and such a good friend to me. I missed a lot of time with her while my husband was in the US Army. I am thankful that I live close to her now and can at least visit her once a week. Even though we live in two states now because of my husband's job, I am able to see her which for many years at a time was not the case. I have so much respect for all those who have served or are serving now in the armed forces.

This is a total case with a few tweaks. I am not at my home where I have the card I cased. It was in a VC Rocks swap and so cute. I changed the color of the sunflowers and added a base to my pot. You know the saying, "Mistakes are just reasons for embellishments?" LOL Well when I traced and cut out the template by Andrea Walford. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with a Texturz Plate. When I got the card out of the Big Shot, I discovered that it had slipped and at the bottom the impression wasn't there. So I decided to add a saucer to the bottom to cover the mistake. LOL Now you know the rest of the story.

Hope you enjoyed the card and Happy Stampin'!
