How did this happen?

How did Mother's Day sneak up on me?? Here I was stressing about getting all the shower stuff done for my sister, and then I realized I only have 3 Mother's Day cards done when I really need about 8?? I had better get to work!! I decided to make this card for today's limited supplies challenge into a gift card holder(since that is all I ever give out for Mother's Day) that we learned to do a few weeks ago for the technique lover's challenge. Today's limited supplies challenge was to make a card using no stamps. You could use any embellishments, rub ons, whatever, just no stamping! For some reason, I got a total mental block when faced with this super simple challenge, so all I could think of was my Bazil Bling Blossoms. I bought a bunch of these in different colors, and decided this would be the perfect opportunity to use them. I had some scraps of this DP laying around, so I used it to make the bottom panel and the strip across. I tied a cream organdy bow around it and then added my flowers. The big one is the Bazil blossom, the other two started out white and I colored them with markers. The plaque at the bottom is from Making Memories and simply says Love. What do you think?? Thanks for looking and have a great day!! I am off to crank out some more cards and get started on shower stuff(my poor neglected husband, house and dog are taking a back burner)!!
